Alex Ihrig/Immokalee Fire Control District

Immokalee Fire Control crews were on the scene of a two-story multi-family dwelling fire at 121 N 6th St at 5 a.m on Tuesday, March 27.

No injuries were reported but at least 25 people were displaced because of the fire and water damage.

The fire was caused by an electrical issue in the void space between the first and second floors. Fire damage was contained to that area, while smoke/water damage is present on the first floor. The rest of the structure was preserved.
