Darrel Robinson says he is a resident of the building. He says he had just smelt something, when a neighbor knocked at the door and told him the home was on fire.

Fire officials say there were four residents of this building. All four made it out safely. The Red Cross is assisting those people with shelter tonight.

Damage to the building is estimated at $100,000, and the investigation is ongoing.
