Massive fire breaks out in Morrisiana

Posted: Updated:

A massive fire in a residential building on Rogers Place left tenants on the street Monday night.

Fire officials say they received the call at around 8:30 p.m. Tenant Antonio Jimenez, who lives on the second floor in the building next door, says the fire spread to his building.

He told News 12 he was laying down when he smelled the fire.

"And then next thing you know I'm getting a knock on the door, that's our roommate telling us there's smoke," said Jimenez.

Jimenez says there was panic because they're worried about their belongings, but that they are grateful they're alive.

Officials say there was one minor injury to a firefighter.
