Four families are out of their homes Sunday morning after a fire damaged their town homes in Webster.
Fire crews were called to the four unit town homes on South Estate Drive in Webster just after 3:30 in the morning. Firefighters say flames were coming out several windows on both the first and second floors.
Everyone inside was able to get out safely.
Two apartments in the building were completely destroyed and the other two sections had heavy smoke damage. Firefighters say a brick fire wall helped stop the fire from spreading to the other side of the building.
Several fire companies were called to help.
Craig Akins, the Chief of the Webster Fire Department, said, "The fire was burning so hot we had holes through the first floor and the second floor, and that turned out to be a little bit of a problem during the firefighting operation. We had to call special attention to that to make sure nobody fell through the floor."
No word yet on what caused the fire.
The Red Cross is assisting four people with clothing, food and housing.
