Audio above from our friend Eric Hurst at (YouTube Channel) from yesterday's two-alarm fire in Denver, Colorado. Also on this page are various videos from the scene.


Fire broke out Tuesday afternoon on the roof of a downtown Denver parking garage, causing a big black cloud of smoke to billow over the area and cover neighborhoods in smoke. It left three people injured from smoke inhalation, one of whom was hospitalized.

"On the roof over there, they've got that mechanical room that holds a couple of chillers, and that's what was burning, that's what caused all that heavy smoke out there," said Denver Fire Department spokesman Mark Watson.

The parking garage is next to the Warwick Hotel and the 303 E. 17th office building. The fire did not spread to those neighboring buildings, but the office building was evacuated.

    I never understood white fire trucks in an area that gets snow.  LOL.  We used to have them many years ago, got away from them.
