Crews battle apartment fire in Lowden


LOWDEN (KWWL)-- Red, white and blue celebrations in Lowden were interrupted Saturday night when an apartment building caught fire.

Fire crews were called the 700 block Washington Street around 9:30 p.m.

The building was the former Trinity Lutheran School. It had been turned into an apartment building with five apartments.

Everyone got out of the building safely.

Crews had the blaze under control after an hour but by then, the roof caved in.  The top floor of the building was empty at the time of the fire.

No word on what sparked the fire. The American Red Cross is helping the building's residents.
