MY RAW VIDEO -
Shortly after 7:00 p.m. tonight, Readlyn Fire responded to an apartment fire at 110 West 3rd Street in Readlyn. It was also reported one person was trapped inside.
Neighbors told me a man lived in the apartment alone. Flames and a lot of smoke were coming out the first floor in the back of the building and a person was trapped in the upstairs. No one currently lives in the other apartment.
Fire officials said when fire fighters arrived the fire was on the first floor of one apartment and had spread a little to the basement. Fire and law enforcement officials are not confirming if there was a fatality or the name of the person that lived in the apartment. They did say no one was taken to the hospital. The State Fire Marshall's office has been called to assist in the investigation into the cause of the fire.
Readlyn Fire was assisted by Readlyn EMS, Tripoli EMS, Readlyn Police and the Bremer County Sheriff's Office.
