On Thursday Morning, December 12, 2012 at approximately 1:42 am the Anchorage Fire Department received a 9-1-1 call reporting a fire in an apartment at 5369 E 4th Ave (six plex). The caller reported that their apartment was on fire and that all of the occupants were out of the apartment but the other apartments were still occupied.
