Fire Destroys Building at Chanticleer Apartments in Selma
An apartment fire in Selma leaves seven families homeless.
Eight units at Chanticleer Apartments were destroyed by the fire — Tuesday evening.
Seven single mothers and about 25 children — lost nearly everything they had.
Officials say no one was seriously hurt in the fire.
But one woman had to jumped from the second floor of the building — to get to safety.
“The roof started caving in so I had to go the opposite way. When I looked down the steps and seen all five of my kids was looking up at me so, that’s when I took the jump,” said Savannah Jackson.
Fire officials say the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
