Fire forces 6 families out of apartments

March 23, 2010

The Red Cross is assisting six families forced out of their apartments by fire. The Fishers Fire Department responded at about 9:45 Monday night to reports of a first-floor fire at the Deerbrook Apartments near Allisonville Road. They put it out, then used thermal imaging and other tests to make sure it had been extinguished. They were called back at 11 p.m., however, after the fire reoccurred. About half the apartments in the 16-unit building suffered fire and water damage.
