After a series of back-and-forth reports, Denver Fire says only one person went to the hospital because of a fire that ripped through an auto body shop in north Denver.
The fire started around 9 p.m. March 31 at Alternative Auto Solutions near 46th Avenue and Josephine Street, not far from the Purina plant.
This has been a fluid situation since the fire sparked. Denver Fire originally reported one person died and another was hurt in the fire. On scene the night of March 31, the department told Denver7 that no one died and one victim went to the hospital. On the morning of April 1, the Denver Fire Department public information officer told Denver7 that paramedics took two people to the hospital. Then again around 8:30 a.m., Denver Fire corrected the number to say one person was hospitalized for smoke inhalation.
Denver Fire officials apologized for the confusion. The public information officer thought there was a missing person for a period of time but they have confirmed only one person was hurt.
The fire department hasn't said what caused the fire.
