FD: Phoenix Fire burns 1 apartment, damages another

PHOENIX, AZ - A fire at a transitional facility left 10 occupants displaced after a fire burned one unit and damaged another. 

According to the Phoenix Fire Department, a fire occurred around 10 a.m. Monday. Fire crews found a medium-size apartment that was on fire on the second floor of a building near 22nd and Roosevelt streets. According to fire officials, there was "heavy smoke and fire billowing out of the unit." 

Fire officials said firefighters kept the fire to only one apartment unit that did not extend to other apartments, but the unit below it did have some water damage. 

Fire officials said there were 10 occupants who were displaced as a result of the incident, but the transitional facility had room for them so they would not have to leave.

There were about 30 firefighters and personnel who worked on extinguishing the fire.

A Google search for the address fire officials provided shows the Transitional Living Communities in that location. The complex offers different types of counseling for a variety of disorders, abuses and other mental health issues.
