Investigation continues into early morning fire in Macon

Crews battled the blaze in Macon, Mo. for five and a half hours

The Macon Fire Department is investigating a fire that took place early Tuesday morning.

Just after 2:30 a.m., crews were called to a two-story apartment complex at the corner of Prairie and Duff Street in Macon.

Two trucks and over a dozen firefighters responded to the call.

Crews battled the blaze for five and a half hours, closing off an entire block because of freezing water. Paramedics were called to the scene to make sure the firefighters did not get hypothermia.

The department received extra help from Macon's Rural Fire Department and Bevier firefighters.

All residents were displaced from the apartment building. No injuries were reported.

The exact cause of what started the fire hasn't been determined. Investigators are still interviewing the victims about what may have started the fire.
