Crews had to deal with a large fire that destroyed a corner building at Park Jefferson Apartments Friday night.
The fire broke out around 9 p.m. in building 201. A WSBT reporter at the scene said firefighters had to battle the flames defensively, meaning it was too dangerous for them to be inside the building and were pulled out.
“I could see flames shooting 300 feet up in the air,” said Rebecca Williams, watching alongside fiancé David Brock, both of whom spotted the blaze from their home in the Edison Park area.
Firefighters say there are no known injuries or fatalities. The fire is out, but they will likely be at Park Jefferson for a good part of the night to make sure it stays out.
Fire officials believe it started on the east side of the building, but when they got to the scene flames were shooting out of both floors. They spread to the attic and then roof, causing it to cave in.
