An early morning fire Tuesday forced seven residents of an apartment to flee their home in Madison Township. The blaze was reported at about 6:45 at 770 State Route 430, apartment three. Madison firefighters arrived quickly, because they already had a truck nearby due to a previous false-alarm call. The fire started in the living room, causing extensive damage, with light smoke filtering into the neighoring apartment. A man was put in an ambulance to keep warm because he escaped wearing little clothing. The three children taken to the hospital did not have visible injuries or signs of smoke inhalation. They were taken in just to be checked. Three women also live in the apartment. The Richland County chapter of the American Red Cross was called to assist the residents.
