Fire forces North Side residents from apartments
Six occupants of a two-and-a-half story brick building in Perry South will have to seek shelter elsewhere because a fire damaged their apartment building Wednesday.

Fire department officials said the fire started on the upper floor. Smoke and water damaged the first and second floors.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation. Officials could not provide an estimate on the extent of the damage.
