MISHAWAKA — Two were taken to the hospital Monday night — a resident for smoke inhalation and a firefighter for a minor eye injury — after a fire erupted at 5630 Town Center Drive in Main Street Village Apartments.
The 8-unit apartment building was evacuated after the fire started around 5:30 p.m. The building was heavily damaged.
According to the Mishawaka Fire Marshall, only half of the renters had renters insurance.
According to the fire marshall, it will take some time, days or weeks, before the cause of this fire will be determined. He said there are going to be insurance investigators and an electrician coming in later.
