MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Two fires burn in one day in the same apartment complex, and both are currently investigation.
The first was in Maison De Ville around noon on Monday, October 21. Mobile Fire Rescue says one of its own was battling a blaze on the second story when he injured his shoulder moving furniture in the apartment. He was taken to a local hospital while the rest of the crew put out the flames.
The next fire struck a two story corner apartment at the Maison Imperial.
No one was injured during the evening fire, but residents like Don Maddox couldn't get to their home while firefighters battled the blaze.
“It’s just a sudden reaction," Maddox said. "You don’t expect these things to happen, but obviously they do. First concern is ‘was it my apartment?’ and it was not. But we do know Tommy Arrendoll, who lives in that front apartment.”
District Fire Chief Aubrey Bishop says the two fires are not connected in any way.
“For this particular fire here, it looked like it started in the kitchen, so apparently there was something in the kitchen that started the fire," Bishop said.
Investigators are working to figure out the causes of both fires.
