Electrical Fire Fills Apartment Building With Smoke

(Updated at 3:40 p.m.) An apartment building in the West End filled with smoke Tuesday afternoon as a result of an electrical fire in the basement.

The fire was reported around 2 p.m. at the Foxchase Apartments, on the 100 block of N. Jordan Street, near Duke Street.

Firefighters extinguished the fire, but residents of the 11-unit apartment building will be temporarily displaced as a result of damage to the building’s electrical system. The power to the building has been shut off, a fire department spokeswoman said, and the apartment management company “will work on relocation for the affected occupants.”

A building inspector and the power company have responded to the scene.
