No one hurt in Macon apartment fire

Macon-Bibb County firefighters are trying to determine what caused an apartment fire this morning.

By midmorning, investigators were still on the scene at Woodcreek Apartments building H where the upstairs apartment sustained significant damage in the fire.

All of the tenants in the building were safely evacuated before firefighters began tackling the flames. No one was hurt in the blaze on Log Cabin Drive, said Macon-Bibb Fire Chief Marvin Riggins.

The apartment complex was hit in the Mother's Day tornado, and large debris piles remain scattered around the property.

Debris beside building H also burned, and the investigator is trying to determine if the fire started in the pile outside and spread to the building or began inside the upstairs apartment.

A class of new recruits for the fire department was among those who worked the fire to train in a real life situation.
