Toledo picnic tomorrow for Hunters Ridge

Residents displaced by a blaze that destroyed nine buildings in a South Toledo apartment complex are invited to a picnic tomorrow hosted by the city of Toledo.

The fire started about 1:30 a.m. July 5 after fireworks ignited the roof of an apartment building at the Hunters Ridge complex on Gibraltar Heights Drive near Byrne Road and Airport Highway. No one was hurt, but 200 tenants were displaced.

The picnic will be from 4 to 6 p.m. in International Park at the gazebo area. The event will include food, paddle boat rides, and entertainment by former American Idol contestant Candace Coleman. Items for the picnic were donated.

The American Red Cross, which provided emergency services to 89 families and an overnight stay for one person, is assisting the city with the picnic.
