A late-morning fire on Thursday heavily damaged an apartment in Millcreek, leaving its two occupants looking for a new home.
Unified Fire Capt. Clint Mecham said the 10:42 a.m. blaze at the Country Lake Apartments, 355 E. Wood Bridge Dr. (4050 South), initially forced evacuation of several other units next to and below the second-story unit where flames were first spotted.
Crews arrived within four minutes of the initial 911 call and spotted flames and smoke coming from the second-story unit's balcony. The fire blew out a window and had moved into the unit's kitchen area, but the flames were soon extinguished.
