Fire destroys at least 2 apartments


WYOMING, Mich. — A fire destroyed one building at Timber Ridge Apartments Saturday.

Residents are still looking for animals that strayed during the chaos, though firefighters were able to return a cat to one thankful young woman. No one was injured as they left the building.

“Although the fire caused extensive property damage, the residents of the apartment building were evacuated and there were no injuries.” Lt. Eric Wiler of the Wyoming Department of Public Safety told FOX 17. One medic on the scene told us there were no fatalities.

Calls to 911 started to come in just before 3:45 Saturday according to the Kent County Sheriff’s Office.

Police are asking the public to avoid Timber Ridge Trail for the next few hours while they investigate the damage.
