EAGLE RIVER, Alaska (KTUU) - Multiple units responded to a structure fire in Eagle River Saturday afternoon.

According to Anchorage Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Davidson, 23 units initially responded to the fire on Heritage Place just past 6 p.m. Saturday. The blaze burned a group of six apartments.

“They were able to pretty quickly, simultaneously work on bringing the fire under control, as well as to identify that all of the occupants had safely evacuated the building,” Davidson said. “So once we determined that we were able to place quite a few of our units back in service because we determined our primary life-hazard that we’re most concerned about, had been addressed.”

No injuries have been reported. The Red Cross of Alaska is assisting 12 residents impacted by the fire.
