GLENDALE, Colo. (AP) -- Police arrested a tenant suspected of starting a fire that killed at least one person and destroyed a 58-unit apartment complex in this Denver suburb.
Fire Chief Arthur Johansen said Monday one woman was found dead following the blaze early Sunday, but the building was too unstable to search for other possible victims. Red Cross officials said they were still trying to locate residents of four of the building's units.
``We're obviously concerned,'' Red Cross spokeswoman Sara Spaulding said. She said more than 40 families were left homeless by the fire.
Some residents, barefoot and in shorts, had to be rescued from balconies after the fire started early Sunday in freezing weather. The identity of the woman found dead in the fire was not immediately released.
Blake Fieber, 22, was being held without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder, punishable by life in prison or death. District attorney's spokesman Drew Grant said formal charges were expected to be filed next week, and could include other counts.
Police Lt. Mike Gross would not say what led to Fieber's arrest, but officials said Fieber lived in the first-floor unit where officials believe the fire started.
The complex had no sprinklers. It was built in 1971, before sprinklers were required.
``We got out but we lost everything,'' said Kenneth Robertson, 23, who rushed out with his girlfriend and their cat but little else. ``I mean, we had to get out quick. There was just no time.''
