CINCINNATI (WXIX) -One person was rescued, and eight families were displaced after an apartment fire occurred in West Chester Sunday.

Firefighters say they were called to the fire on Fountains Blvd. around 1 a.m.

The man who was rescued is expected to be okay, firefighters said.

One man says he lost everything including his computer, laptop, and phone.

“I was awakened by the fire department knocking at the door letting me know there was a fire going on. I thought it was a firecracker going off and finally my alarm went off and I ran outta there as quick as I could,” Rafael Britl said.

Firefighters say that the top floor of the apartment is considered a total loss.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
