Detroit — Firefighters battled a raging, two-alarm blaze Friday morning at an abandoned apartment building to save two surrounding buildings, according to fire officials.
Fire companies were called at about 4 a.m. to a fire in the four-story Gormar apartment building, near Woodward and Nevada, the fire department said.
Flames engulfed the interior of the 20-unit structure, which is in between St. Joseph Medical Center and Goodcare Quick Lube & Service Center.
At one point, firefighters took hoses on top of the auto service business to attack hotspots.
The blaze was nearly extinguished, with only light smoke billowing, at about 6 a.m.
There were no reports of injury, fire officials said.
It is unclear what caused the fire inside the vacant structure.
