Firefighters respond to West Raleigh apartment fire
A fire at a west Raleigh apartment complex Thursday has left 16 people homeless, Raleigh fire officials say.
Firefighters were called to 3121 Aileen Drive around 6 p.m., a news release said. When the first truck arrived at the Arium Trailwood apartment complex off Gorman Street, firefighters found a fire in progress. The complex is made up of many two-story buildings.
The building on fire was occupied and rescues were made, the release says. No injuries were reported, it says.
One person jumped from a second-story window, ABC11 reported.
Aerial video from ABC11, The News & Observer’s media partner, showed firefighters on a second-floor deck walking around a damaged unit. Fire investigators said eight units were damaged.
The fire, which was determined to be accidental, was contained in about 30 minutes, investigators said.
