Aurora fire

One person was killed and 12 others were injured in a two-alarm apartment fire late Thursday, Aurora Fire Rescue said.

The fire broke out at 1600 N. Galena St. in northwest Aurora about 11:45 p.m.

Fire officials said several residents jumped from windows and ladder crews performed multiple rescues.

The fire was brought under control about 12:35 a.m.

Five people were taken to a hospital, including the person who died, and eight others were treated at the scene, officials said.

One person at a hospital has life-threatening injuries. The condition of the others is not known.

Six engine companies, four ladder companies two battalion chiefs and six medic units responded to the fire.

About 60 people were displaced because of the fire, which rendered the entire building uninhabitable. Vans were brought to the scene to keep people warm.

The Red Cross is working with the displaced residents, Aurora Fire Rescue said.

The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.
