Thirteen people are out of their homes after flames tore through an apartment complex in Macedon early Thursday (728) just after midnight. A neighbor called 911 after hearing glass break and screams
According to South Macedon Fire Chief Adam Weinstein the flames began on the second floor of one of the apartments and quickly moved through the rest of the building, destroying several apartments along the way.
“When we arrived there was heavy top, front flames,” added Chief Weinstein.
It was reported, at the scene: “As you can see, it’s very heavily damaged, the crews are now overhauling it and trying their best to get some of the victims, trying to get their stuff out of their house,” said South Macedon Fire Chief Chris Creamer, “So, crews are trying to get their things out of people‘s houses as best as they can.”
The blaze was the scene of another apartment fire back in December of 2021.
“I do know some of the victims that were in the first complex in December, that happened, and they moved over to this complex and their nightmare came back alive all over again,” said Creamer.
The whole building has been declared a loss. One man broke an ankle jumping from the second floor balcony
