CLIFTON, Colo. (KKCO) - The deadly fire has the usually quiet Clifton neighborhood on Gunnison Avenue shaken up.

Many say the Staats were just a good-hearted family that didn't deserve this.

"He was friendly. We would talk a while when he worked on his truck and I worked in the yard. He was a really nice man and I'm sad for the family," says one neighbor.

Bruce Staats worked as an over the road truck driver, according to family and friends.
