AURORA — It will be a tough mother’s day for one Aurora family.

Fire ripped through their Aurora condominium in the 15000 block of East Arizona Saturday just before 9:00 a.m.

Neighbors called 911 to say they saw flames on the balcony of the third floor.

 “We have an adult female with five children who live there and they were not at home at the time of the fire and the other residents were able to evacuate without injury,” said Captain Allen Robnett Aurora Fire Department.

The American Red Cross came out to help the family.

Firefighters say they were able to contain the fire to that one unit, and say the cause is still under investigation.
