Michigan Apartment Fire Displaces Dozens Of People

MONROE, Mich. (AP) — Officials say dozens of residents have been displaced by an apartment building fire in southeastern Michigan.

Officials say four people had to be rescued out of a window after the fire broke out Saturday morning in Monroe.

The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/1oKU5Ny) in nearby Toledo, Ohio reports two residents suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to a hospital. There were no reports of serious injuries.

It took firefighters less than two hours to get the blaze under control.

Officials say all 49 units in the building sustained fire, smoke and water damage. Most of the building’s roof had collapsed.

The Red Cross is providing assistance to the displaced residents. Most of them say they have renter’s insurance.
