Fire heavily damages condominiums in Fayetteville
Everyone evacuated safely after a fire damaged several units at Stewarts Creek Condominiums.

Some people in Fayetteville are looking for a new place to call home after a fire damaged several apartments Friday at Stewarts Creek Condominiums.

Battalion Chief Kevin Dove, with the Fayetteville Fire Department, confirms everyone got out safely. He said twelve condo units were affected by the fire and three others received water and smoke damage.

Firefighters did safely rescue three dogs and one cat and all appear to be okay, the chief said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, however, the chief said they believe it started in a lower unit and went up a back wall.

The American Red Cross is also assisting at the condo complex.

Fifty-one firefighters worked the fire from three different fire departments.
