The bottom floors were not affected by the fire but did suffer from water damage. There was nobody home at the time of the fire, and the fire department is working to get in touch with property owners. There were no injuries.

Crews said there is structural deterioration and they had to pull personnel out of the building, the fire was contained only to Building M. Around 2 p.m., one crew remained in the building knocking out hotspots.
