Crews were sent to Castlewood Apartments on Spring Valley road around 5 in the morning.

Crews saw fire coming from a second-floor apartment and some residents were trapped on the balcony because the flames were blocking their path out.

We’re told the fire started after someone started cooking and fell asleep.

Six apartments were affected due to water and smoke damage.
