DENVER -- One person was injured after a fire broke out in an apartment building early Tuesday morning, the Denver Fire Department said.

The fire was at the Warren Park Apartments at 2187 S. Depew St. in southwest Denver and was called in about 6 a.m.

One person was taken to a hospital with minor smoke inhalation, the Denver Fire Department said.

All other occupants inside the building were able to get out safely.

Several firefighters responded to the scene and quickly got the fire in the three-story building under control.

The fire was in a third-story unit, which suffered heavy damage. Some other units might have suffered water damage.

"My boyfriend was getting ready for work and I just heard loud banging on the walls and everything," resident Haleigh Torres said. "We ended up grabbing what we could and just walk outside. ... That's when the flames got bigger."

First- and second-floor residents were allowed back inside the building. It's not known when third-floor residents will be allowed back inside.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
