A fire broke out in a Coral Springs condominium complex on Monday afternoon resulting in the loss of 24 units.
At 12:12 p.m., The Coral Springs Fire Department was called to the scene of a blaze at the Ramblewood East Condominiums at 4119 Northwest 88th Avenue. According to Fire Department Division Chief Mike Moser, heavy fire was coming out of the second story apartments. He said that everybody was able to get out safely, however, 24 apartments are now uninhabitable from fire, water, and smoke damage. Moser doesn’t know if there were any animals trapped inside and said the Coral Springs Humane Unit is on the scene.
The American Red Cross is currently helping residents with shelter and food.
Officials do not know how the fire started, and can’t gain access into all the apartments because it’s too early. An investigation will be held shortly.
