Cause of West Park Ave. fire remains unknown

Posted: Updated:

The cause of a fire that started early Friday morning on West Park street is still not known.

Investigators were out at the scene, but were unable to identify the exact point of origin.

Crews with Liberty Management boarded up the property so anything that might be salvable from the fire will be protected so residents can come and get it.

Firefighters say the fire started on the back porch, but quickly spread to the attic. One resident said she woke up to the sound of doorbell and smoke in her bedroom and rushed to get all the children out of the house.

Crews with Liberty Management described what it looks like inside the quadriplex.

Andrew White, of Liberty Management, said all the ceilings are down and that water was all over about a foot deep.

The Red Cross is helping the nine people who were displaced by the fire.

Liberty Management said they are working with the management to try to get anything they can out of this building but they say the majority is a loss.
