Lakeview Meadows fire in Battle Creek

by Phil O'Reilly

A late night fire at Lakeview Meadows in Battle Creek has consumed most of one of the two apartment buildings at the complex, which provided housing for the elderly.Fire Cheif Dave Scmaltz confirms that a number of the residents use oxygen, and that may explain why the fire spread so quickly and was so difficult to bring under control. These folks had some angels looking out for them. Hats off to the BCFD and BCPD as well. Thoughts and prayers with families during this challenging time during the weeks to come as well.
