Several large palm trees and the west half of the building (8 of the units) were fully involved with fire. Embers landed on the roof of the second building (to the east) and started a surface fire on the roof of the second building. 81 firefighters extinguished the trees, eight west-side apartment units, and the fire atop the second building (thus protecting the entire second building and east half of the first building). Approximately 50 residents will be displaced. Many residents were rescued, and five patients resulted from the fire. Three were transported to the hospital in serious condition from smoke inhalation and the other two declined transport with minor injuries.
