Quadplex Fire in Titusville Displaces Residents
Officials with the Red Cross in Titusville are currently assisting individuals who were affected by a large fire that broke out at a quadplex located along the 2100 block of Harrison Street within Titusville. Members of the Titusville Fire Department were some of the numerous emergency personnel to respond to the first reports of the fire, and statements that emerged from this organization indicated that the quadplex is a two-story building that was housing several different families at the time of the fire.
The reasons behind the fire are currently believed to be accidental, and the officials stated that the fire remained confined to the single apartment in which it first began. Regardless, it is believed that by the time the firefighters and other emergency response crews reached the area that the fire was raging and had broken through the rear of the building, making it visible to the outside.
Members of the Brevard County Fire Rescue responded with the Titusville Fire Department to battle the flames. It is believed that between these two groups, the fire was able to be contained to the unit in which it first began and that they were able to ultimately extinguish it without too much trouble.
It is not known how many people were living in the unit or in the quadplex leading up to the fire, but we do know that none of them were injured as a result of the fire. While the fire is being investigated the building is uninhabited. The Red Cross is helping assist the individuals who are temporarily displaced by the fire, but it is not clear just when these people will be able to return to their homes.
As stated above, the reasons behind the fire are not currently clear, and although the Titusville Fire Department and the Brevard County Fire Department believe that the reasons for the blaze are accidental, they did not offer any clues as to where there investigation was taking them at this particular time.
It is not known who owns the quadplex or what sort of responsibility these owners have towards their tenants in cases of a situation such as this one.
