Friday afternoon's fire at a brick apartment building on the 400 block of Avenue G left all tenants displaced until further notice, despite the best efforts of fire departments who fought the two-alarm blaze. After several hours containing the fire and tamping out hot spots, personnel from Columbia, Wrightsville, Blue Rock, and other companies began packing up equipment. Some personnel remained at the scene.
Two state police fire marshalls continued investigating the scene to determine the origin and cause of the fire.
The American Red Cross was also on scene, helping displaced tenants find temporary shelter at local motels and elsewhere.
This morning (Sunday), Columbia Spy noted window openings had been boarded up with plywood, and a CONDEMNED notice, designating the property as "Unfit for Human Occupancy," was posted on entry doors.
