The blaze broke out in the building around 4:30 p-m yesterday, destroying the building and causing an estimated one-point-two million dollars in damage.

Firefighters spent the night on the scene putting out hot spots. Dozens of residents were displaced by the fire and the Red Cross is helping by providing them food, clothing and shelter.

Investigators say the blaze may have been started by a blow torch being used to repair plumbing in the kitchen of one apartment.
