MADISONVILLE, OH (FOX19) -- A two alarm fire at the Centennial Station apartments in Madisonville kept emergency crews busy on Sunday evening.

The fire broke out in the 4200 block of Erie Ave. around 7 p.m. Sunday.

Fire crews say when they got on scene, the fire had fully engulfed the first floor of the three story apartment building.

Fire then spread to the top floor, collapsing part of the roof.

Emergency crews say that 14 apartment units are believed to be a complete loss from either fire or water damage.

The good news is that no one was hurt, but fire officials do say some residents had to be rescued from the smoke and flames.

The cause of the fire is still undetermined. The apartment building could be a total loss.
