Fire Chief Clarence Reese says when firefighters arrived, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the third level of the parking garage, which has apartments just one level above. A pickup truck was on fire.

As of 3:20 p.m., the fire was under control thanks to the work of five units and 15 firefighters, the chief says. Crews remained on scene for some time to double check the apartments above to make sure the fire had not spread in any way. Chief Reese says the apartments were evacuated before fire crews arrived on scene.

No injuries were reported. It’s unclear how the fire started.
