No one was injured in a fire that damaged two apartments on Lansing Street near downtown Mt. Pleasant.
Firefighters from the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department were called to 325 N. Lansing St. at approximately 4:13 p.m. Tuesday for reports of smoke rolling out of the two-apartment housing unit.
The fire was contained to the lower apartment, and firefighters quickly extinguished it, according to a Mt. Pleasant city blog post. The occupants of both apartments got out of the house uninjured. No firefighters were injured.
