Clinton fire leaves 16 families homeless

An apartment at the Reserve in Clinton went up in flames Sunday, leaving 16 families temporarily homeless.

Clinton Fire Department Capt. Cornell Graham said the building was more than 50 percent engulfed when firefighters arrived in the early morning.

He said the structure was a total loss, but there were no injuries.

The American Red Cross gave out money and vouchers for three nights at a hotel.
Reserve managers are working to find the residents more housing.
