VIDEO/PHOTOS: Dozens of firefighters were called to battle a massive apartment fire that left several families displaced early Monday in Pineville.
The fast-moving flames broke out just after midnight at the apartment complex along Plum Creek Lane. Channel 9 crews on the scene could see intense flames shooting from the apartment units and second-floor balconies as firefighters tried to get the blaze under control.
Tenants were forced to flee their homes but officials told Channel 9 that no injuries were reported.
“I probably would have ended up dead if they hadn’t knocked on my door and woke me up, baby,” said resident Barbra Burch. “I’m going to my girlfriend’s house. I guess you got to take me shopping or go shopping for me because I ain’t got no clothes except for my gown. Oh Lord, have mercy.”
