Damage estimated at $200K after fire at Windsor apartment building

Damage is estimated at $200,000 after an early morning fire tore through a Windsor apartment building on Martindale Street Wednesday.

The fire began in a living room sofa, according to Windsor Fire Services, but the cause is still undetermined.

The Red Cross is assisting residents who were forced out of the five-unit apartment building after fire fighters arrived to find the three-level building ablaze near Campbell Avenue around 3 a.m. 

Despite the flames and smoke everyone was able to escape unharmed.

Investigators will examine the scene today.
