Five people were displaced after an apartment fire in Canon City Sunday morning.
The fire started Sunday morning around 7 a.m. at a three-unit building on the 200 block of Greenwood Avenue. The structure was originally thought to be a duplex, but the Canon City Fire District says that upon arrival it was learned that there were three units, not two.
Firefighters had the fire under control by 9 a.m., and then moved to "salvage and overhaul mode," a spokesman with the fire district said, meaning firefighters went through the building covering up property that can still be salvaged, and checking walls and ceiling to make sure there was no additional fire. They remained on scene until 2 p.m.
One apartment has "extensive damage." The Red Cross is on the way to Canon City to help those displaced.
