Firefighters in Midland battle early morning apartment fire

Fire destroys apartment building at the Villiage of Joseph's Run complex in Midland.

A twelve unit apartment building is a total loss after an early morning fire at the Village of Joseph's Run apartment complex in Midland, Monday.

Midland Fire Chief Chris Coughlin tells NBC25 the fire happened just before 2:30 a.m.Monday morning. The building was fully engulfed when units arrived.

"The fire started high in the attic it appears, and the brisk winds helped carry the fire through other parts of the building," Chief Coughlin said. "We were able to keep the fire from spreading to other buildings."

All residents evacuated safely and no one was hurt.

American Red Cross is helping residents who are now displaced.
