Residents from AFCA Home find place to live after fire

DETROIT (WXYZ) - After a terrifying fire, residents from AFCA Home have been given a place to stay as fire investigators try to determine what caused the blaze.

It happened Friday evening on Detroit’s west side.

The fire broke out on the building’s top floor, displacing about 20 residents.

The Red Cross has been making sure all of the victims are okay.

Though none of them were harmed physically, but some are still shaken up what happened.

Firefighters credit foster care worker Eugenia Denson for making sure everyone got out safely. 

Management is hoping to assess the damage soon to see who much repair is needed.  They would like to fix the building and stay in the area. They have been in business in that area since the early 1970s.

The cause of the fire is still not known, but investigators say they don't believe it's suspicious.
