Owners of an apartment that burned to rubble, killing two construction workers, have notified possible litigants that a determination of responsibility for the blaze awaits further investigation by Denver fire inspectors.
Because the cause of the blaze has not been settled, the owners of Emerson Place Apartments, and their respective insurance providers, “do not acknowledge that they are responsible for the alleged damages that prospective claimants purport to have sustained,” according to Matt Moseley, spokesman for Allante Properties, the Greenwood Village company developing the five-story, wood-frame apartment complex in Denver’s North Capitol Hill neighborhood.
The cause of the March 7 fire at 1833 Emerson St. remains under investigation. The three-alarm blaze killed two men and injured six people. It also destroyed about 30 vehicles and damaged 13 nearby buildings.

“A cause of the incident has yet to be determined,” the notice says. “Accordingly, the owner and its affiliates, and their respective insurance providers, do not acknowledge that they are responsible for the alleged damages that prospective claimants purport to have sustained.”
The notice further advises that if any claimant wishes to inspect the site, they have until Friday to do so.
