DENVER -- Three people were injured and several others lost their homes after a row house fire late Saturday. 

The fire on Clayton Street just south of Bruce Randolph Avenue was reported at 9:48 p.m. 

Fire was showing from the front of several units when firefighters arrived, according to Captain Robert Miller with the Denver Fire Department. 

"They assisted several people out of their homes," Miller said.

A resident named Joyce told Denver7 that firefighters kicked in her door.

"I don’t know where it started or how it started. All I knows is they coming (sic) through my apartment to get me out of there." 

She said she was not injured. 

Those hurt were treated by Denver Health Paramedics and taken to an area hospital.

As of 11 p.m. the fire was under control, but Miller said it was still to early to know what caused the blaze.

The row house has a dozen units and eight were damaged by the fire.

RTD buses were requested to "keep them (residents) warm until we can get them a place to stay," Miller said.

The Red Cross was assisting residents in finding a place to stay.
