Crews arrived at the scene around 1 a.m. to flames shooting through the roof.

Firefighters were able to knock down the flames quickly but there is significant water damage to the home.

Fire officials say there are 7-8 apartments and 10-12 are now out of a place to live after the building inspector came through and declared the building uninhabitable.
