COPY-Fire Hits Apartment Building in Carey

CAREY, OHIO -- Four fire departments are on the scene of a large fire in Carey.  The call first came in around 7:30am on Tuesday.

Our news partner the Findlay Courier reports the apartment complex is at the corner of East South and South Vance streets in downtown Carey.  A neighbor reportedly called 911 after seeing two women hanging out of a window and yelling for help.

The Courier says Henry Cole, of Carey, told them some one pulled up a truck under the window and was able to get the women out of the building.  They were treated for their injuries.

The apartment contained 9 units.  The fire caused a roof collapse, and firefighters had to shoot water on the flames from aerial ladders.

People who have been left homeless by the fire have gone to the American Legion post down the street from the fire scene.

No one knows yet what started the fire.  Carey is about 60 miles south of Toledo.

This is a breaking news story, and as soon as more detail comes in, we'll post it in this space.
