A 2-Alarm fire on Monday July 27, 2020 ripped through an apartment building off of Alcott Drive near Fairfield Road.
All occupants of the building managed to escape safely. By the time firefighters arrived on scene there was heavy fire coming out of the front door of the building as well as heavy smoke. The first units on scene would call for a 2nd Alarm not long after they arrived.
Roughly 50 CRFD personnel were involved in the operation. The Red Cross was contacted to assist six tenants that were left displaced by the fire. Roughly half of the units in the building were left damaged.
The Richland County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating what caused the fire.
