An intense fire raged through a mobile home in Aurora Tuesday morning.

AIRTRACKER7 was over the fire at 6:05 a.m., before firefighters arrived. 

Large flames were shooting out of the roof of a building at the Green Acres Adult Community. 

There was no inside the mobile home when the flames broke out, fire crews told Denver7.

We saw the Aurora Fire Department escorting a resident out of a neighboring trailer.

Fire crews aggressively attacked the flames, said Sean Dolan with the Aurora Fire Department.

The design of the neighborhood made it difficult for firefighters to access, Nolan said. The roads are narrow, the trailers are close together and fire hydrants are far apart.

Firefighters seemed to have the large flames extinguished by about 6:40 a.m. but continued to work on hot spots.

Flames gutted the inside of the mobile home.
