Firefighters battled an apartment fire in Trotwood this morning.
The fire was reported around 10:45 a.m. at the Wingate at Belle Meadows complex on Shiloh Springs Road in Trotwood.
A brick apartment building in the complex was engulfed when fire crews arrived on the scene.
The cause of the fire is not known at this time.
The fire comes as the community works to cleanup after an EF4 tornado hit Monday night. The building had not been damaged in the tornado. It had been without electricity and water until Friday, said Marquita Atwater, 31, who lives in an apartment across the street from the one that was on fire.
“This is terrible,” said Atwater, adding that relatives of her aunt’s husband live in one of the burning apartments.
People living in the apartment were evacuated and no one was injured. All pets in the apartment were saved.
