Fire at downtown loft building

Fire crews were called to a loft apartment building at 1103 Grand Blvd. on Friday evening.

Firefighters encountered smoke coming from some duct work on the second floor shortly after 8 p.m. but no fire. The sprinkler system had been activated.

An occupant of the 13th floor said her power went out and she and several other residents evacuated the building but there did not appear be any serious injures.

The fire call came while other fire crews were finishing work on a previous fire in a high-rise apartment building at 1224 E. Linwood.
