An apartment fire in Milwaukie Thursday morning destroyed several units, leaving multiple families without a home. Clackamas Fire officials said no tenants were injured in the fire that broke out just after 9:30 a.m. at the Kona Gardens Apartments off Southeast Rusk Road. But Clackamas Fire Public Information Officer Brandon Paxton said one firefighter did have a non life-threatening injury. FOX 12 spoke with several tenants at the complex, including Cayman Jarvis who described what he saw Thursday morning. "It kind of started going through the roof and it basically just started collapsing," Jarvis said. Jarvis lives next door to the fireball that erupted, but his apartment was seemingly spared Thursday morning.
