Eight families are without a home after fire ripped through an apartment building.

Flames erupted at the Gratiot West Condominiums in Saginaw Township around 5:00 a.m. Friday.

Fire officials say a resident was cooking when the grease ignited and sparked the fire.

Fortunately, everyone escaped the blaze, but the buildings suffered heavy water and smoke damage.
