GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Grand Rapids firefighters spent Sunday morning battling a fire at Marsh Ridge Apartments, a senior living complex. The fire started shortly before 4:30 a.m. in the complex's maintenance garage.
Fire crews were able to contain the fire quickly, but the building is a total loss. Maintenance worker Volney Elkins was nearby when the fire started, "one second everything is normal, next thing you've got pops and the whole fire department is down here. It happened so fast."
The fire destroyed maintenance supplies and a complex-owned golf cart that were in the building. No one was inside at the time, and the cause is still under investigation.
