Two injured in fire at Richland Terrace apts.

Jun 6, 2010 6:03:00 PM - thestate.com
Two people were injured and taken to a Columbia hospital after an early Sunday morning fire at the Richland Terrace apartments on 1212 Metze Road.

Columbia interim fire chief Aubrey Jenkins said neither smoke-inhalation injury was life-threatening. No firefighters were hurt.

About $70,000 worth of damage was done to six apartments, but the cause of the blaze is unknown, Jenkins said.

“We know where the fire started — in a bathroom vent — but we don’t know why it started,” said Jenkins.

The local American Red Cross is taking care of 13 people displaced by the fire.
