GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Firefighters are on the scene of an apartment house fire on Grand Rapids' west side.

It stared around 4:45 a.m. Thursday at a home on Bridge Street near Lane Avenue NW.

Crews say the fire started in a room in the corner of the home, and spread from there.

They had the fire out around 5 a.m., but it flared up again in the walls of the building and spread to the attic. Firefighters say the fire also spread to a home next door.

Everyone from both homes has been evacuated. The American Red Cross is responding to the scene to help the fire victims in securing shelter and new clothing.
