Superior apartment fire displaces dozens of residents

Four adults and one child were rescued from the third floor and dozens of people were displaced in a building fire in Superior on Monday night. The Superior Fire Department said they responded to the Nottingham Apartments at 1719 N 19th at 1:00 a.m. to find fire coming out of an apartment on the third floor.

Occupants of the 35-unit mixed use structure were leaving the building assisted by officers from the Superior Police Department.

Authorities say the five people rescued by firefighters were taken from a third-floor window due to smoke and heat conditions blocking their exit.

Two adults were transported to the hospital by Mayo ambulance. The others affected were evaluated on scene and refused transport.

Firefighters also rescued numerous pets. 

Due to the large amount of smoke, heat, and water damage sustained, residents were not able to return to their apartments.

Firefighters assisted occupants with getting essentials from their units. The American Red Cross has been notified and is assisting residents as needed.

All units cleared the scene at around 4:30 in the morning. Damage is estimated to be $150,000 dollars.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

SFD was assisted on scene by the Superior Police Department and Mayo ambulance.
