Sixteen people were affected by the fire and stayed with family. Those without family stayed free of charge at two area hotels.

  The apartment building and below the apartments used for storage by a local furniture store, and a local attorney’s office are total losses. The building west of the apartment, Hornbacher’s Café, sustained substantial smoke and water damage.
