Residents Return to Apartment Complex

Posted: Updated:

The west Chateau Apartment building did not undergo any damage from the neighboring blaze, but its residents did evacuate the building for safety precautions.

One resident says she heard a fire alarm and a man in the hallway telling everyone in the apartment complex to evacuate the building around 7 am.

The resident says she was able to return to the apartment around 11 this morning.

The west building remained unharmed during the fire, however, it did cause concern for the residents.

(Dani Bates, Chateau Resident)"I was really nervous that it was gonna get all the way over to us. And we sat an watched it and it watched it move all the way over, so that was really scary."

(Erling Alm, Chateau Resident)"Well, everything was moving so fast I didn't have time to worry about anything. I just packed my suitcase and got out of here."

The west building has 32 living units - and everyone was allowed back into their apartments before Noon today.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
