Alma Fire



A fire in downtown Alma early Monday afternoon destroyed a one-bedroom apartment in a building. 
    
Alma Asst. Fire Chief Ben Schams said the fire started in a 2nd floor upper apartment on the south side of the building. 
    
Cause of the fire was not immediately determined. Firefighters extinguished the fire from the inside after getting access through a rear entry. 
    
Tom Elliott, owner of the apartment building, said the apartment was destroyed. Four other apartments did not appear to be damaged. 
  
A man renting the apartment was not at home when the fire occurred. There were no pets in the apartment and no injuries occurred, according to Schams. 
    
Firefighting units from Nelson, Tri-Community and Fountain City also responded to the fire call.....
