2-Alarm Fire Rips Through Apartment Building on Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day just after 1 p.m. CRFD 1st Shift crews headed to 2028 Watermark Place after getting reports of an apartment fire.

Ladder 7 spotted a column of smoke from I-126 while en route and arrived on scene to find fire showing from the third floor windows and roof of one of the apartment buildings.

Rescue 1 forced entry on the first floor and companies made entry to get up to the fire floor. Crews attacked the fire in one apartment and put it out.  The tenants of the apartment where the fire started were not home. Two small pets were found on the second floor of the building and removed.

CRFD investigated the fire and determined that the fire was started from an electrical source on the third floor. One apartment suffered heavy damages and another suffered exposure damages from the fire.
