Authorities say a fire broke out in a bottom floor unit at Cameron Cove Apartment after 2 p.m. at the apartment complex on the 2600 block of Southwest 79th Avenue.

Firefighters worked quickly to put out the fire but there was concern about how it would impact units adjacent to and above the blaze.

CBS4 reporter Carey Codd spoke to a woman who lives two stories above the unit on fire. She said her brother happened to be visiting and he was able to save her puppy while she was at work.

“I just heard a bunch of people screaming and I didn’t hear alarms or anything so I didn’t know what was going on, so I waited a little bit and I looked out the door and it was all black smoke so I ran and grabbed my wallet, grabbed the dog and I was like let’s go Mila. I opened the door and it was hot as hell so we ducked down and ran out the stairs,” said Brendan Jasuta.

Heavy smoke could be seen from the second and third floors of the three-story apartment building.

Video images from CBS News Chopper4 showed fire damage to the building and several fire rescue units on scene.

Two firefighters were taken to a local hospital and treated for heat exhaustion, according to authorities.

One resident was treated on scene for smoke inhalation. He’s expected to be ok.

CBS4 has been told one resident needed to be rescued by firefighters from the 3rd floor.

A fire rescue spokesperson says 9 units were affected by the fire.

The state fire marshal is on scene trying to determine where the fire started and why.

The residents of those 9 units are not going to be allowed to go back and get their things.

They’ll likely be displaced at least for the night.
