Nearly 50 people have no place to call home after a fire quickly spread through their Warrensville Heights apartment complex Monday afternoon.
A shoe, chair, pieces of people’s lives are scattered around the apartment complex. While police and fire continue to investigate, displaced residents are trying to pick up the pieces of their lives.
A domestic dispute turned into a SWAT standoff at the apartment complex on Monday. Police said a man threatened his wife and children. She was able to get out, but the man barricaded himself in the apartment and set fire to it before he could be arrested.
The fire quickly spread leaving dozens of people without a home. “All I got now is what I have on. I lost everything,” said Wesley Robinson.
