The CBS4 This Morning team was outside the scene where firefighters were working to control flames at the building in the 2200 block of Arapahoe Street.

This response caused road closures on both Arapahoe and Lawrence Street from 22nd Street to 23rd Street. It also closed the intersection with Arapahoe and Broadway. Those closures remained in effect at the start of the morning rush hour.

As of 11 a.m., the fire was under control, but it was still unsafe for crews to go inside after the building collapsed. No injuries were reported.
