A&A Insurance, AL, fire destroys apartmentsHUNTSVILLE, Alabama - About 30 to 40 people are displaced from their apartments after an early morning fire struck Twickenham Village on Sunday. Heavy flames were coming from one apartment and in a breezeway between apartments when firefighters arrived when crews arrived at 5001 Galaxy Way N.W. A female resident jumped from her second-story apartment and sustained non-life threatening injuries, reported Capt. Frank McKenzie, Huntsville Fire & Rescue public information officer. The report came in to the 911 center from a resident that was reporting "Fire in a wall". Engine 15, Engine 12 and Ladder 12 trucks responded first, and began extinguishing of the outside of the building. Then were able to make entry into a downstairs apartment and extinguish most of the fire, McKenzie said. Fire crews then preceded upstairs and extinguished remainder of the fire, he said, and residents from the backside of the apartments were evacuated as the fire was being suppressed. Power was shut down on the complex with 16 apartment units. Eight units sustained smoke and fire damage. Residents in another eight units were displaced from lack of power, McKenzie said. The American Red Cross is looking into setting up a shelter due to high number of residents affected. In all, six fire engines, one ladder truck and one special response vehicle responded to the fire. Quick actions by the responding firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to all 16 apartments, McKenzie said. Content provided by
