As firefighters continued to spray water onto the smoking structure, some residents of the apartment complex said they had fled their homes when fire broke out.

Tracy Bishop, one of the tenants of the near downtown Toledo building that is located close to the Huron Market, said she was in her apartment when she heard the nearby garage door open and then heard it shut.

Suddenly, flames were shooting across her ceiling. She fled, shouting to a nearby neighbor to get out. “It wasn’t just smoke. It was fire,” she said. Ray Abou, owner of the building, said there were seven tenants in six apartments, and that he believed all tenants had escaped the building. One tenant said her “pit bull” puppy was unable to flee the burning structure.

Mr. Abou said he heard that the cause of the fire might be electrical in nature. Patricia Rollins, who lives in the complex, said she smelled burned wire. At about 4:15 p.m. firefighters continued to work at the scene. Among equipment were five fire engines.

Firefighters who were at the burning building when two people, possibly both firefighters, were taken from the building were replaced at the scene with other firefighter crews.
