AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters say a blaze at a three-story apartment building in Aurora has killed one woman who fell from a second-floor staircase balcony, and injured a dozen people.
Aurora Fire Department Capt. Allen Robnett says it's unclear how the woman fell. When crews arrived at the scene yesterday morning, an escape staircase was in flames. Firefighters rescued about 10 people using ladders from the ground.
