Fire Destroys Apartments

A firefighter was injured while battling an intense fire at an apartment complex on Tuesday morning.

The fire broke out just after nine at the Prince Hall Village Apartments in Frankfort. That's just off Main Street.

Two units were destroyed by flames. Firefighters say the fire spread rapidly, but they were able to put it out before it destroyed the whole building.

No one was home at the time.

A firefighter was hurt when he slipped and fell while fighting the flames. We're told he hurt his back and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.

Firefighters will be on the scene for much of the day to try to figure out what started the fire.
