Mountain View apartment fire displaces eight


A fire damaged all four units in an apartment complex on Sunday afternoon (Sept. 12). The fire started just before 5 p.m. in the kitchen of one of the apartments and spread to a concealed wall space, said Mountain View fire spokeswoman Jaime Garret. No injuries were reported.

Eight residents of the complex, located in the 100 block of N. Rengstorff Avenue, were displaced by the fire, Garret said. The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.

In a press release, Garret wrote that it is important for people to make sure they have working smoke detectors installed in their homes.

"Each year, nearly 3,000 people die in U.S. home fires, and having working smoke alarms cuts the risk of dying in a reported fire in half," she said.
