Fire forces evacuation of S. Toledo apartment building

A water heater explosion Tuesday night caused a small fire and an evacuation of an apartment building in the 5700 block of Dorr Street in South Toledo, authorities said.

There were no reports of injuries.

The fire in the Tudor-style three-story building was reported about 8:40 p.m. It appeared to be confined to a second-floor apartment.

As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, fire crews were checking the third floor and the attic to make sure the fire had not spread.

The Lucas County Auditor s Web site lists Vanderbilt LLC of Marion, Ohio, as the owner of the building, which was built in 1977.
