Bloomington fire displaces residents of apartment building


Residents of a building in the Crescent Park residential complex in Bloomington were displaced after a fire broke out Monday night at 3210 John Hinkle Place, said Tim Clapp, a fire inspection officer at the Bloomington Fire Department.  

Clapp said the department received a call around 10 p.m. about a fire on the third floor of the complex. He said his crew was on the scene until around 1:30 a.m. The department is still investigating the cause of the fire. 

Clapp said all 12 apartments in the building suffered significant damage and will take at least two months to repair. He said the department does not provide estimated costs of damage. No residents, firefighters or pets were harmed in the incident. 

Clapp said the department does not know where the displaced residents will go until repairs are complete, but that the residents have made temporary arrangements.
