Poor housekeeping plays role in apartment fire
No one injured, but blaze caused about $500,000 damage
The Morris Fire Protection and Ambulance District fought an apartment fire Sunday night that was so extreme the chief said it was fortunate there were no fatalities.
At about 8:50 p.m., Morris fire was called by Morris police to 510 Twilight Drive to a fire in an apartment building. Police were evacuating the building, which was empty when the first fire engine arrived on scene, Fire Chief Tracey Steffes said Monday morning.
"I'm absolutely very surprised with the amount of fire and the type of conditions," Steffes said. "We're very lucky we did not have a fatality with the extreme fire conditions there last night."
