LUDINGTON — A late morning fire damaged an apartment house at 302 S. Washington Ave. Tuesday, June 11. Emergency personnel were called to the scene about 11:20 a.m. Officers from Ludington Police Department were the first to arrive and reported flames coming out of the back apartment. Sgt. Tony Kuster said nobody was home in the apartment on fire, but residents were in the other two apartments. Officers were able to safely remove everyone from the apartments.
Firefighters from Ludington Fire Department quickly extinguished the fire, but the house suffered severe damage. The house is located just one block from Foster Elementary School which was being dismissed due to a scheduled half day of school.
Emergency units responding included Ludington Fire Department, Ludington Police Department, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police, and Life EMS. The American Red Cross was also called to provide assistance to the residents.
