Dozens of people have been forced out of their homes after a fire at a Denver apartment overnight.

Fourteen units have been deemed "uninhabitable," with 70-90 residents displaced.

Our sister station KCNC says firefighters were greeted by heavy smoke when they responded to the Valley Park Apartments just before 3 a.m. Tuesday. Eight fire companies and 36 firefighters responded.

Residents were all able to get out safely, and there were no injuries reported.

The assistant fire chief on scene told KCNC that the fire appears to have been caused by an electrical issue. Officials believe it started in a utility area.
