OTSEGO (WKZO) -- An overnight fire in a large apartment complex in Otsego has destroyed 8 units and left dozens of people homeless for now as firefighters had to battle flames and the intense cold for hours early this morning.

Four departments worked in shifts, battling the flames.

They believe the fire, at the Brookside Terrace complex began in the second floor of the 20-unit apartment building.

Everyone was able to escape, but two were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

The rest of the displaced tenants were taken to a nearby middle school to keep warm until the Red Cross can resettle them in temporary shelter.

They do not suspect foul play, but the state Fire Marshall will investigate.
