Aurora Fire Rescue crews were dispatched to a reported structure fire at a multi-story, single-family residence in the 2800 block of South Oakland Circle in Aurora at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20.

A total of nine occupants were located at the home. All were transported by AFR and Falck paramedics to local hospitals. Three of the victims were in urgent condition and six were transported in critical condition. The fire took the lives of two of the victims.

Due to the large number of occupants, support from multiple AFR units were called on-scene, leading to the second-alarm assignment.

AFR crews quickly accessed the victims and removed them from the building. The fire was quickly brought under control and searches for any other trapped parties were completed. A dog was located and safely rescued.

The origin and cause of the fire remains under investigation. No other information is available at this time.
