Second fire at Troy apartment complex within three months


TROY, N.Y. -- For the second time in three months fire struck a Troy Housing Authority apartment complex.

Crews were called to the Martin Luther King Apartments early Wednesday afternoon. At one point, radio calls announced it as a two-alarm fire, but crews were able to get the fire out quickly.

An assistant chief with the city fire department says it appears to have started in the kitchen of one of the apartments. Everyone got out safely and no injuries were reported.

The same apartments were the site of a massive fire, during the early morning hours of July fifth.By the time firefighters arrived on scene, the flames had already destroyed one unit.

After it was put out, around 30 people were left without a home. Residents who spoke to NEWS10 ABC afterward said it was a miracle no one was seriously hurt.
