UPDATE 7:50 P.M. - A fire at Farmington Manor heavily damaged one of the apartments in the 700 block of East Court Street.

The fire spread to two other apartments and a utility room, which sustained minor damage, Farmington Fire Chief Matt Watters told 25News photojournalist Andrew Best.

It took about a half-hour for crews to get the fire under control.

Paramedics treated one of the residents at the scene, but that person did not go to the hospital.

The chief said “numerous” residents are displaced because of the damage and the power is out.

The Salvation Army was helping those who didn’t have a place to stay Thursday night.

“Obviously apartment 15 is displaced as well as the adjacent apartments. We also have some other occupants that have been displaced due to no power in the building for various reasons,” said Chief Watters.

Farmington firefighters were aided by Copperas Creek, Fairview, Elmwood, Yates City, Logan-Trivoli, and Buckheart fire departments.

The chief said the State Fire Marshal’s Office has been called in to investigate the cause.

(25News Now) - A fire broke out late Thursday afternoon at an apartment complex in northeast Farmington, the Fulton County Emergency Services and Disaster Agency (ESDA) confirmed.

The fire is in the 700 block of East Court Street.
