DENVER - Fire investigators are trying to determine the cause of a two-alarm apartment fire at 10700 E. Dartmouth in southeast Denver.

The building is near the Kennedy Ballfields just east of Havana and Dartmouth. The fire was causing a lot of smoke in the area.

The Denver fire department says crews were on scene by 10:50 a.m., six minutes after the first calls were received. They found the third floor on the north side of the building fully engulfed in flames.

Ten units suffered heavy smoke and fire damage, before the fire was contained.

One firefighter suffered injuries to the neck and ear, but is expected to be alright. No residents are believed to have been hurt.

Some people told 9News they heard some type of popping sound when the fire broke out, but investigators have not commented on a cause at this point.

Fire crews on scene say there likely would have been more injuries if it hadn't been for three police officers, who were the first to respond to the alarm. The officers helped quickly evacuate the building.
