A fire caused heavy damage to an apartment building in Greenfield Wednesday afternoon, but everyone who was inside the building is believed to have escaped without injury, a fire department official said.
One firefighter was treated for heat-related stress during the fire at the 24-unit building near S. 88th St. and W. Layton Ave., Greenfield Fire Department Interim Chief Jon Cohn said.
Eight of the units sustained heavy damage and at least four sustained secondary smoke and water damage, Cohn said.
The fire appeared to have started in the rear of the structure, however the cause of the blaze was under investigation, Cohn said.
Fifteen residents were displaced by the fire and the Red Cross was called to the scene to assist them, Cohn said.
No further information on the fire was available late Wednesday afternoon.
