6 Families Lose Homes in Raleigh Apartment Fire

Posted May 20, 2000

— Six families have lost their homes to a Sunday morning apartment fire.

Firefighters battled the smoke and flames at Meredith Village apartments in Raleigh, just after 8:30 a.m.

The fire started in a lower unit in the back of the building and spread very quickly to the roof.

Everyone got out safely.

Fire officials say the construction -- fire walls and a cement floor -- helped contain the blaze.

Six units were damaged by fire, smoke, and water.

The cause is still under investigation.
