Four residents got out on their own prior to the fire department's arrival. Three were transported by AHS to hospital for treatment of minor smoke inhalation, while one man was transported with serious burns.

All of them will be displaced as a result of the fire.

Investigators remain on scene looking into what caused the blaze. Top Stories
