Battalion Chief Keith Watson said when firefighters arrived flames were coming out of the unit, located on the roof on the opposite end of the complex from Piggly Wiggly. He said it took firefighters 10-15 minutes to get the fire under control and they evacuated people from the building. He said there was smoke damage to two of the units but no damage to the Piggly Wiggly or to the adjacent florist. 01/22/14
