Firefighters say when they arrived at the apartment on the 800 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming out of the front door. The flames also spread to an apartment next door.

The bathroom and the hallway were on fire, which fortunately could be extinguished quickly by the fire brigade. The home sustained severe fire damage and American Red Cross officials are on the scene to offer assistance to people living in both homes.
