Most of the citizens had vacated the building by the time teams arrived. Kline said one person had to be taken down by a ladder from a balcony.

“The teams did a fabulous job hitting it down fast and keeping the fire to two units,” Kline said.

Investigators stay at the scene, Kline said.

Kline said the Red Cross had been told to help those incapable of returning to their teams because of fire damage.
