Apartment Fire Update and Photos

MCFRS Units were dispatched to a report of fire in the apartment in the 5500 block of Burnside Drive.  Upon arrival units encountered fire on the 2nd floor extending to the 3rd floor.  The fire was brought under control quickly.

Approximately nine people were displaced with both occupants of the fire apartment transported to a local hospital for evaluation of smoke inhalation and released shortly there after.  Total damage estimate of approximately $75K.  The cause has been determined to be accidental due to unattended incense.  The smoke alarms in the apartment worked!
