DENVER -- A second body was found at the site of a three-alarm fire in Denver's North Capitol Hill neighborhood on Thursday, the Denver Fire Department said.

The body was found about 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The fire killed one other person and injured six others, including a firefighter who was released from the hospital on Thursday.

Investigators believed everyone has been accounted for, fire spokesman Greg Pixley said.

Fire and utility crews remained at the scene of the fire at 1833 Emerson St. to make sure the fire does not restart.

The fire broke out just after noon Wednesday as most people were trying to get lunch or going about their normal routines.
