Firefighters responded to call around 4am Sunday and found flames coming from an upstairs unit at the complex on North 66th at Ave H. They made a fast attack and knocked the fire down quickly. Investigators say an AC unit in a bedroom window caused the blaze.

That room sustained most of the damage. The people inside made it out safely.
