Fire destroys F'ville apartment building

A Thursday afternoon fire in Fayetteville resulted in the total loss of an apartment building at the Weatherly Walk Apartments on Knight Way. No injuries were reported in the blaze.

Fire Chief Bill Rieck said the fire call came in at 1:20 p.m. and was initially reported as a brush fire and then re-dispatched as a commercial structure fire. Rieck said the first fire units arrived within four minutes, though the nature of the fire resulted in it being upgraded to a three-alarm fire.

The fire resulted in the 700 building being fully involved and subsequently a total loss, Rieck said.

Rieck said the 10-unit apartment building was searched and 24 people were displaced as a result of the blaze. Rieck said Red Cross officials were in transit to assist those who lost their homes. Rieck added that there were no injuries reported to firefighters or residents.

The cause of the fire will be the subject of an investigation.
