The fire brigade says the duplex was completely in flames when it arrived at the scene. The Red Cross was called to the scene to help the people living in the apartment.
Toledo, Ohio-The Toledo fire brigade was fighting a large double fire in northern Toledo on Thursday night. The fire started around 11:00 pm on 900 blocks of Superior.
The fire brigade says that when the vacant duplex arrived at the scene, it was engulfed in flames and the entire backside of the building burned out in a short amount of time.
The duplex is very close to the buildings of the other two apartments. One adjacent apartment was occupied, damaged by a fire and had to shut down all power to that building.
The number of affected residents is unknown. The Red Cross was called to the scene to assist them.
The apartment on the other side of the duplex was undamaged. The fire brigade worked very hard to contain the fire in almost one structure.
“The crew … had to work very hard for the first 30 minutes to control this,” said Captain Matthew Brixie.
The duplex will be dismantled. At this time, the cause of the fire is unknown.
