Fire destroys Fredericktown apartment complex

FREDERICKTOWN, MO (KRCU) - An early morning destroyed an apartment complex in Fredericktown on Thursday.

Fredericktown fire chief John Clark calls the complex a total loss.

“Upon our arrival we found a structure with flames showing through the roof. All victims were accounted for. We did have one with injuries. She was transported to Madison Medical Hospital. And we had a firefighter with a back injury. We had him checked out for precautionary measures.”

Clark estimates damage to be worth between four and five hundred thousand dollars.

The state Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire.
