UPDATE: Apartment Building Blaze Began on Third Floor
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- Fire officials say the fire in the three-story apartment complex began on the top floor and investigators are focusing their efforts on a balcony area. However, a cause has not yet been determined.
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- Fire crews worked hours Tuesday evening fighting a massive fire at the Conifers apartment complex.
Flames ripped through the three-story apartment building in the 9300-block of Swaying Pine Court.
"We saw smoke coming out of the top right building window," Conifers resident Wendy Kessen explained. "About 5 minutes later we saw flames out the top of the building, and 5 minutes later the whole building went up in flames."
Grey smoke muddied the sky and could be seen for miles.
"The smoke looked like it was coming from the Conifers and when I got home I couldn't even get in my house," neighbor Whitley Pontnack added.
With the building evacuated, a half dozen fire trucks from Washington Township and Miami Valley Fire District battled the blaze for hours.
A dedicated crowd watched the fire slowly fade for over four hours, each wondering what happens next.
"All the fireplaces in the building are gas so the pilot light stays on. I'm assuming that's why it took off like it did," Kessen said. "Looks like it's going to be a total loss."
Officials from the Red Cross stepped in to help the 11 families, 28 adults and eight children that are without a home.
Red Cross officials who had a debriefing with the fire chief tells us the 12 unit apartment building is considered a total loss.
No word yet on what caused the fire. The investigation is ongoing.
MIAMI TOWNSHIP -- Firefighters are working to extinguish a fire at an apartment complex.

We have a crew heading to the scene and will provide you with more information as it becomes available.
