WARNER ROBINS -- Families in four apartment units were displaced by a weekend fire at the Southland Station complex at 210 Southland Station Drive, a news release stated.
Firefighters dispatched at 10 minutes after midnight Sunday found flames visible from an apartment on the upper floor of a building, the Warner Robins Fire Department news release stated. All tenants had already been evacuated upon firefighters’ arrival, and no injuries among tenants or firefighters were reported, the release stated.
The fire was contained to two of the apartment units. But two other units below suffered water damage and other physical damage when firefighters pulled ceilings down to check for any fire spreading, the release stated.
Five fire trucks were utilized, including three pumper trucks, one ladder truck and one brush truck, the release stated. Firefighters were on scene for about four hours.
The American Red Cross is helping those displaced by the fire.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
