Flames gutted an apartment building in Estes Park Friday morning.

Everyone got out of the building on Chapin Lane safely, officials said.

AIRTRACKER7 flew over the complex as crews worked to put out the last of the flames.

The roof was completely gone and only the outside walls of the building were left standing.

The Red Cross helped 14 adults and six children who lived in the building find somewhere else to stay.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The apartment building is about a mile from the iconic Stanley Hotel.
