When they arrived, there was heavy smoke and flames coming from the fourplex. According to Fire Chief Frank Babinec the power was out in the area, then came back on, and within a half hour his office received the call. One of the units had heavy fire damage, two had heavy smoke damage and two had light smoke damage.
Residents will no longer be able to live in the apartment and will work with the American Red Cross to find them shelter he said.
