Several families have been displaced after someone set their apartment building on fire on Detroit's west side.

Families are shaken up after the fire as it is the third one at that building in one week, but the fire department said they saw it coming and were prepared.

The fire was so intense that one firefighter received a small burn while trying to put it out. Investigators are calling it arson, saying someone intentionally set several fires inside the building.

"I shouldn't feel this way," said resident Sherinda Johnson. "I haven't had a wink of sleep since I moved up in here, this is unacceptable."
