OAK PARK, MI – A fire that ripped through an apartment building has claimed the life of a 70-year-old woman.
The fire occurred early Thursday morning, February 26th, 2015, at the Rue Versailles Apartments. Barbara Davis, 70-years-old, was a tenant of one of the 10 units that were destroyed.
A man had to toss his two daughters, 11 and 9-years old, off of a balcony of the burning structure. Once they were safe, he had to jump off the same balcony to safety, which was caught on cell phone video.
Firefighters put the fire out, but there is still no word on what started the blaze.
