Authorities Working To Identify Fire Victim
Authorities are still working to identify the man killed in an apartment complex fire in Columbusâ€™ Linden neighborhood on Sunday.
Columbus Fire Batallion Chief Michael Fowler says the investigation is ongoing, but the man is thought to be a resident of the building that sits at the corner of Cleveland Ave. and Oakland Park Ave.
“The fire was believed to have started in a bedroom of one of the apartments, apartment 8A. But the victim was found in a hallway outside of the apartment,” Fowler says.
Fowler says most of the 75 people displaced by the fire stayed in a nearby hotel last night.
