“The first unit found a building fully-involved,” Elmore said. “Many of the occupants stated they couldn’t get out of their front doors. The breezeway was on fire.”
At least four people were injured, authorities said. The woman and her son were taken to a hospital.
“We did escape a lot of serious injuries, but I understand there were a few animals that were inside that are not accounted for,” Elmore said.
The fire displaced about 15 people and impacted about 10 units, according to Red Cross spokeswoman Ashley Henyan.
The cause of the blaze has not been determined.
