Parma firefighters battle fire on top floor of 7-story apartment complex
PARMA, Ohio (WOIO) - Parma Firefighters battled a fire on the top floor of a seven-story apartment complex Saturday afternoon, according to the Parma Fire Department.
Firefighters were called around 4:25 p.m. to 5500 Laurent Drive, for reports of a working fire at the Regency Apartment complex on the top floor of a seven-story building.
Crews say upon arrival heavy fire was seen at the front of the building on the top floor.
The ladder nozzle was used to extinguish the main body of the fire while a hose line was established in the stairs, fire officials say.
Firefighters say the fire was quickly brought under control.
Fire officials say there were smoke alarms in the building which played a huge role in prevention. No one was hurt or taken to the hospital.
“Smoke detectors save lives especially in apartment buildings. Make sure you check them every 6 months, change your batteries, check your clocks and close before you doze,” said Robert Brues, Public Information Officer, Parma Fire Department.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
