MIAMI TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – Firefighters still putting out hot spots at an apartment fire in Miami Township.  It sparked late Tuesday afternoon in the 9300 block of Swaying Pine Court.

Three dozen people had to find somewhere else to stay, eight of them children.  The Red Cross is helping two families.  All others are staying with family or got help from the apartment complex management.

Photos back to the newsroom show heavy flame and smoke coming from a three story apartment building.

Witnesses say a family cooking in a third floor unit started the fire.  They say a woman was running door to door to warn residents about the fire.

There are no reports of injuries, but we’re told a resident’s pet cat is missing.
