MFRD's Districts 1, 3, 6, 7, 8 and Engine 1 responded to a fire at 1710 E Northfield Blvd (Chariot Point Apartments) just before 4:30 Thursday evening.
Crews located the fire in two units of building Q, but were able to contain the fire to those two units. One other unit received minor smoke damage.
The two families that were displaced were assisted by the American Red Cross.
It appears that the fire started in the chase between the two apartments. The Fire Marshal is conducting a routine investigation.
According to Assistant Chief Kaye Jernigan, crews did a fantastic job of keeping the fire contained to only those two units.
