Fire damages apartment building in Roscoe
An early morning apartment fire displaced more than a dozen people Thursday in Roscoe, Washington County.
Roscoe Mayor Tom Wilkinson, who also is chief of the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department, said it appears the blaze started with a space heater on the second floor of the Central Apartments building on Furlong Avenue about 4 a.m. The fire marshal is investigating. No humans were injured, but one dog died.
Firefighters had to wake residents who were sleeping, Wilkinson said.
The fire damaged all three stories of the building. The American Red Cross provided food and shelter to 14 adults and three pets.
