Big fire

The western building of Park View Apartments burned this morning. According to WFLI, the fire started bit after midnight and there was one fatality. There were still fire trucks and police vehicles at the site when these pictures were taken, about 7:30.
 Below is the back of the building. Note the water--there was a lot of standing water around the building and even in Columbia Park.
The Rensselaer Republican posted some impressive pictures on Facebook and probably will have the full story in Friday's edition.
