An apartment fire in Pearl happened shortly before 5 p.m. Friday at The Village Apartments on Cross Park Drive in Pearl. Eight units were heavily damaged.

Flames were seen shooting through the roofs of several buildings. When fire crews first arrived, firemen were told there were people trapped inside some of the apartments.

The Pearl Fire Chief has told WLBT so far they have not found anyone and at this point they believe all the tenants escaped the flames.
