Golden police search for person of interest in townhouse fire


Golden police are searching for a man they say is a person of interest in a suspicious morning fire that engulfed a multi-residential building.

Police responded to the Table Mountain Townhomes complex, 17250 W. Colfax Ave., around 3:25 a.m. on a felony menacing report, according to a news release.

Officers arrived and contacted a victim, who told them that a neighbor, in unit 103, had knocked a hole through a common wall and that a gun, with a tactical light attached, protruded through the opening, according to officials.

Police confirmed the troubling circumstance and knocked on the door to unit 103, the news release said. In seconds, an orange glow emitted from the unit, where curtains “were beginning to melt.”

The officers backed away, “heard a boom and could see visible smoke and flames,” according to the news release. Officers evacuated the building.
