Daytona Beach, FL- The Daytona Beach Fire Department was called out to a fully-involved fire at a duplex this afternoon. The call came in to go to 240 Desoto St. at 12:30 P.M. Seven people were displaced by the fire.
Five engines battled the fire which is believed to have started from the air conditioner. The front unit was completely damaged but due to the crew’s quick work, they prevented extensive damage to the rear unit.
People were home when the fire started but everyone was able to get out safely. No other homes were affected by the fire but two vehicles parked near the duplex had some fire damage.
The Red Cross is providing assistance to the seven people that lived in the duplex.
