ANTIOCH - Twenty-one adults and 12 children were displaced following an apartment complex fire that damaged ten units at Delta Pines apartment complex on the 2300 block of Sycamore Drive in Antioch, shortly before 8:30 p.m. on March 25.

Arriving crews found a fire had ignited along the side of a one-story, two-unit building. According to ConFire Public Information Officer Steve Hill, the fire later jumped across a walkway to a neighboring two-story building.

“It looks like we’ve got nine, maybe ten units that have been damaged,” Hill said. “The good news is, it looks like all the residents self-evacuated, and there was no rescue required.”
