Black Smoke at Keys Condo Complex Fire

Update: Four units uninhabitable at 320 N. Civic Dr. fire. No injuries reported.

Update, 7:45 p.m. Thursday, interview with Kent Kirby.

Four units were uninhabitable after a quick fire Thursday afternoon at the Keys condo complex at the corner of North Civic Drive and Pine Street.

Reflecting on arriving at a fire that started in a fifth-floor unit in the dense complex, ConFire Fire Prevention Capt. Kent Kirby said, "The stress level really goes up." The potential was very dangerous, he said. One unit was damaged by fire and three by smoke and water.

The fire was reported at 4:57 p.m. Thursday. Firefighters put it out in 10 minutes, Kirby said. He said he was unsure of the cause, but it might have been smoking materials left on a fifth-floor balcony.

No one was injured. Firefighters rescued a cat and a dog. Firefighters had to drag a 5-inch hose 300 feet, Kirby said.
