Residents were safely evacuated after a Monday morning apartment fire in Norton. The Norton Fire Department were alerted to the fire on Kentucky Avenue by a neighbor whose dog was barking and called 911 to report the fire. NFD crews arrived at the scene at 3:56 a.m., three minutes after being alerted. The Norton Police Department arrived on the scene first and alerted all of the occupants of the apartment building. Upon arrival fire crews found the fire extending up the vinyl siding on the outside of the building and going into the attic area. The fire was also extending from a wooden wall and steps on the outside of the building. NFD says they were able to extinguish the fire quickly and limit the damage to the exterior, roof, and attic. One apartment did receive some water damage. Six residents were evacuated, but no one was injured over the course of the fire. Crews returned to their station at 6:30 a.m. after clearing the scene.
