2-alarm fire displaces Woodland apartment residents

WOODLAND, CA - An early morning fire ripped through an apartment complex Sunday, leaving more than a dozen residents without a place to stay.

Woodland fire chief Rick Sander said fire crews from several agencies responded to an attic fire at 814 Fifth Street in Woodland just before 3 a.m.

Residents in the 6-unit apartment building were already evacuating by the time firefighters arrived on scene. Sander said the fire quickly spread from the attic to neighboring units, prompting a 2-alarm response request.

Sander said three units were destroyed and three others sustained heavy fire damage.

There were no reported injuries.

Energized power lines were down on scene but Pacific Gas & Electric did not respond complicating scene safety, said Sander. Firefighters' efforts were hampered by uncommon building construction and other obstacles.

Displaced residents were aided by Red Cross volunteers for housing and immediate needs.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
