Brandon firefighters battle apartment blaze

Firefighters battled a blaze at a Brandon apartment complex Thursday afternoon.

It happened around 1:45 p.m. at the Chapel Ridge Apartments on West Sunset Drive.

Firefighters and three trucks rushed to the location after getting reports of smoke and flames in the area. Brandon police officers evacuated families living in the eight unit building while crews battled the flames.

Division Chief Terry Wages with the Brandon Fire Department said, "They had a hose pulled around and had it knocked down and out in three to four minutes of arriving on scene. Do we know what caused this fire? We're looking at some possible trash that was on the porch. We really don't know what started it. We just know where it started."

No one was injured. The porch area was destroyed, but the inside of the apartments sustained only minor smoke damage.
