AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Fire burned homes after the gas explosion commission retirement in Aurora on Friday night. One firefighter and one civilian injured in the fire were hurried to the hospital.
Copter4 flew across the Heather Gardens to E. Linvale Place near Yale Avenue just after 18:00. There was an explosion in the complex. The fire fired two paired houses.
Aurora asks Lieutenant Laure Bridges that the fire has begun in the so-called Terraced House or in a paired house and that it was a "gaseous fire." Once the gas was switched off, firefighters were able to fire.
Fire officials say they are aware of some buildings happening near the place where the fire occurred but can not confirm the cause of the gas leak.
Neighbors say that the smell of gas was so strong it took the area before the explosion occurred.
"I went out, I was going to the store and I felt the gas and I went," Wow, that's strong, "one resident said.
The neighbors were warned a few days ago about gas leakage. It is unclear whether this leakage is associated with a Friday night explosion and a fire.
The areas were evacuated and the Red Cross shelter was established at Heather Gardens.
Heather Gardens is for its "active seniors" according to its website.
What caused the fire to be explored. Both the fire and the other injured suffered a "non-life threat of injury".
