VIDEO: Oskaloosa Fire crews were called to Santa Clara Apartments on Saturday afternoon, just after 4:45 pm, when a report that an air conditioner caught fire. The initial firefighters immediately requested all available personnel to report in for a substantial structure fire at the two-story complex. Additionally, New Sharon Fire Department was called in for mutual aid, and eventually, crews from Cedar Township Fire would also be requested. There were no injuries reported as a result of the fire, but one family lost everything in the fire. Mahaska County Community Emergency Response Team or CERT, helped the five impacted families find shelter.
