An early morning fire displaced residents of at least 8 units at Forest Oaks apartments on the northwest side of Muncie Thursday. One resident says he saw lightening, heard thunder and a short time later looked outside and saw the smoke. Flames were shooting through the roof of one of the apartments when emergency crews arrived at around 3:30 a.m. Firefighters credited the quick knock down on fire stops installed in the building. Fire damaged only one second-story unit, but several other units suffered significant smoke, water and heat damage. A lightning strike is believed to be the cause. A Muncie police officer suffered minor injuries during the evacuation.
