Nearly 2 dozen people forced out of Tacoma apartments after Thanksgiving fire

TACOMA, Wash. — Nearly two dozen people were displaced after a fire broke out at a Tacoma apartment building on Thanksgiving night.

When fire crews arrived at the complex in the 3200 block of South Mason Street, smoke and flames were seen on the second- and third-floor decks of one building and flames had spread into the attic, according to the Tacoma Fire Department.

After the flames were put out, a fire investigator was called to the scene to determine what caused the flames.

Because the fire happened on Thanksgiving, many residents were not home when it started.

Fire officials said 22 people have been displaced by the fire. Six of those people are getting help from the Red Cross.

No one was hurt.
