Firefighters arrived at 4:24 p.m. and found a three-story apartment building with smoke coming from the back, Barakat said. They made sure the building was evacuated and quickly accessed the third-floor apartment where the fire started, he said.
According to Barakat, the third-floor unit suffered fire and water damage. The two units below also had water damage. Residents can’t stay in the units because water got into the electrical system and the electricity was turned off.
