The American Red Cross was called to assist residents displaced by the fire, according to Rosewall.

The fire was contained between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., he said. Rosewall estimated the blaze caused an estimated $2.5 million in damage.

Exactly 50 firefighters assisted in the fire from 10 fire departments in the area, Rosewall said.
