Dozens homeless after West Toledo apartment fire

Posted: Updated:

Dozens are homeless after a Saturday apartment fire in West Toledo.

The Toledo Fire Department says that fire caused more than $750,000 worth of damage to the building. 

The blaze started just before five on Saturday morning and destroyed most of the complex's 24 units.

Fortunately the residents made it out safely, though most only with the clothes on their backs.

The American Red Cross is assisting people displaced by the fire and they are now staying in local hotels.

Red Cross spokesperson Amanda Aldrich says they'll be put up in hotels for around three days and the organization will assist them with security deposits and finding new places to live as well as food and clothing.
