A man killed in an apartment fire early Saturday morning in Fort Collins has become the second Fort Collins resident to be killed in a fire in two weeks.
In a post on their official Facebook page, Poudre Fire Authority wrote that crews were dispatched to the Cammire condo complex at 2115 W. Plum Street. around 1:58 a.m. Saturday after receiving numerous reports of an apartment fire.
Firefighters removed the body of a man, who was the only occupant of the second-floor apartment at the time of the incident and was later declared deceased.
A second person lived in the apartment, but was not present at the time of the fire. Crews contained the fire at 2:13 a.m., but there was smoke and fire damage throughout the apartment, acording to PFA.
The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will notify next of kin and release a cause of death statement and a future date, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
