WEST TOLEDO (WTOL) - A 2-alarm fire at an apartment complex closed Alexis at Tetherwood, but Alexis has now reopened.

Crews on scene say all tenants have been evacuated and no injuries have been reported.

The fire was at a 3-story apartment complex called the Timber Run Apartments. Our crew on the scene is told the apartment complex is in foreclosure, but tenants were still in the building.

Fire personnel on scene say early indications are that the fire may have been set accidentally by a maintenance man working on plumbing.

Staff and volunteers from the Greater Toledo Area Chapter of the American Red Cross assisted with families after the fire this afternoon at the Timber Run apartment complex in West Toledo. At this time we have given food and clothing to 22 people in ten of the apartments.
