Afternoon fire destroys north Jackson apartment

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two families are without a place to live after a fire broke out at a north Jackson apartment complex. It happened at Cedarstone Apartments.

Jackson Fire Department Chief Willie Owens says firefighters were told the blaze started when something was left on the stove. No injuries were reported.

There are at least eight units in building 10 but some are vacant. Owens says quick work by JFD and a small attic space prevented the flames from spreading.

The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
