Fire in Wilmington Destroys Two Apartments

WILMINGTON -- A fire in Wilmington destroyed two apartments, and about a half dozen other apartments have severe smoke damage.

Early Saturday morning, a fire jolted residents at the Cobblestone Apartments on 17th Street out of their beds as flames ripped through their building.

The fire department says an early morning grease fire broke out, after a man fell asleep while cooking.

The fire quickly spread, destroying two apartments and damaging many others.
