When crews arrived, they found flames on the first and second floors, and the fire had been burning through the roof of a unit at the end of the building, authorities said.
“When crews arrived on the scene they found a fairly heavy fire load that had pierced the roof and into the attic so it raised a second alarm and we called for first aid,” said said Auburn Hills Fire Chief Adam Massingill. .
