Fire forces several people from apartment building

Firefighters are investigating a fire that broke out Wednesday afternoon at a Lexington apartment building.

Firefighters were called to an apartment building on Transylvania Park around 12:30 p.m.

We're told five people live inside the building. Everyone inside the building at the time of the fire made it out safely, and no one was injured.

Belinda Latta lives in the building with her young children.

"It's a nightmare come true, wit it being my dad's building. I never wanted anything like his to happen," said Latta.

Firefighters said they contained the fire to one apartment, but other units may have smoke damage.

While the Latta family lost most of their household belongings in the fire, Latta says that those things can be replaced.

"It just makes me thankful for my family," said Latta.

Firefighters aren't yet sure what caused the fire.
