A four-unit apartment complex on Fountain Avenue caught fire late Thursday night and the families living inside escaped to safety, according to firefighters.
The complex, 1352 Fountain Ave., reportedly started burning around 11:45 p.m.
Three of the four apartments in the building were occupied and some of the residents were home when the fire started, firefighters said. All of the residents were able to make it out of the building safely.
Firefighters said the fire appeared to have started in an apartment on the second floor. The flames, which were shooting from a second floor window when crews arrived, were contained to the second floor apartment, firefighters said.
An exact cause of the fire remains under investigation and the American Red Cross was called to assist the family directly affected by the fire. The other family that was home at the time will stay the night with family members, fire crews said.
