Fort Collins Police Investigating Home Explosion, Fire, Death
Fort Collins Police are investigating a series of events on Monday that left one person dead following an explosion and fire.
That's according to a post on the Fort Collins Police Services Facebook page.
The post says the chain of events began with a 911 call on Monday, July 6 about a disturbance at a manufactured home in the 2500 block of East Harmony Road. The caller said a woman had gone to a neighbors house and said that a man she knew had come to her home and assaulted her, and was now saying he was going to kill her. While officers were on the way, the woman's home exploded and caught on fire.
When police and firefighters got there they found the home in flames. A dead man was found inside, believed to be the suspect in the assault. The surrounding homes were evacuated as a precaution, but residents were allowed to return after the Northern Colorado bomb squad found the area to be safe.
The case remains under investigation by Fort Collins Police.
