Early morning fire under investigation in northeast Atlanta
Weather conditions ‘accelerated’ fire at northeast Atlanta apartment complex
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - An early Sunday morning fire is under investigation in northeast Atlanta.
Emergency crews responded to the area of the 1100 block of North Avenue after reports of a fire around 2 a.m.
“The reason the fire is so large is it was heavily involved prior to our arrival and got a jump start to say on the fire department,” according to Atlanta Fire Department Division 1 Acting OIC Matt Driver.
Multiple fire crews were seen on the street working to put out the blaze.
Residents told Atlanta News First they are glad no one was hurt.
″I don’t know how to feel,” one resident said. “Luckily I’m alive and everything in there is replaceable.”
Everyone was evacuated and no injuries were reported, according to Driver.
Officials say the Red Cross is assisting in the apartment fire. “Our Disaster Action Team volunteers were there overnight providing comfort kits, direct client assistance, and recovery planning. Our volunteers plan to go back out to offer assistance to those they weren’t able to make contact with overnight,” Atlanta fire officials said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
