Meanwhile, local Red Cross volunteers in Denver are helping four families after a multi-unit apartment fire at 1731 Pagosa Way in Aurora displaced an estimated 20 people. The Red Cross is providing shelter and food for the four families who needed assistance, and will continue to follow up to meet additional needs.
