The fire displaced twelve people, including two children.

"As we approach the end of Fire Prevention Month, this fire is another reminder for persons living in apartments, condominiums and lofts to invest in renter’s insurance, as your neighbor’s fire could be yours", stated American Red Cross Regional Communication Officer Brigette Williams. "And, everyone is reminded to have a working fire alarm and evacuation plan at home, work and school."
