One Man Dead In Early Morning Apartment Fire in Fort Collins
A man died in an early Saturday morning apartment fire in Fort Collins. His death marks the second fire fatality in the city in about two weeks.
Poudre Fire Authority crews were dispatched to the Cammire condo complex, at 2115 W. Plum St., at 1:58 a.m. on Saturday following multiple 911 calls reporting an apartment on fire.
