Several families displaced by apartment complex fire

Posted: Updated:
CLIO, MI (WNEM) -

Multiple families are out of their home after an apartment complex caught fire.

The fire started at around 2:23 p.m. on Dec. 16 at Oak Brook Apartments, located at 528 Pine Street in Clio.

Clio City Administrator Eric Wiederhold said a third-floor apartment unit was the focus of the fire, but there is extensive water and smoke damage in the building.

"Never want this to happen, whether it be Christmastime or otherwise, but the fire department did a heck of a job on the stop of the building," said Clio Police Chief Rick Witham. 

The United Way of Genesee County is partnering with the American Red Cross to help the seven families that are out of their homes as a result of the fire. Each family received $300 Thursday, and the City of Clio will begin accepting financial donations for the victims. If you are interested in making a financial donation, write a check to United Way of Genesee County,  marking Oak Brook Apartment Fire in the memo line. You can drop the donation at Eric Wiederhold's office at the Clio Municipal Center.

Most of the fire was contained to one bedroom, but smoke and water damage means the families cannot return to their homes.
