A three-alarm fire Friday morning in Sharonville ripped through twelve apartments. It happened at The Pines on Midpines Drive.
The firefighters tried to put it out, but the fire had already done enough damage by the time they got there.
Firefighters do not know the cause but tell FOX19 that some of the apartments could have been saved if the department had been called earlier. Despite the late call, everyone got out safely, including the pets.
