A fire damaged the exterior of an Opelika apartment complex Thursday.

The fire started on a third-floor porch on the side of Building 10 in Paces at the Estates off of Academy Drive, Opelika Fire Department Assistant Chief Byron Prather said.

The cause of the fire remained investigation, according to the OFD.

“We’re looking at everything right now,” Prather said. “It occurred on the porch on the third floor, on the ground around the air conditioning units, and then (we had) some fire on the second floor.

“Nobody was at home in any of the apartments.”

Prather said that emergency personnel were able to quickly extinguish the fire.

“There’s a broken window, but no interior structure was damaged,” Prather said. “All of it is exterior.”
