Phoenix firefighters battle two-alarm apartment fire overnight.  Captain Benjamin Santillan with Phoenix Fire says an apartment under construction near the 25-hundred block of Siesta Lane was fully engulfed in flames.  Units immediately surrounded the complex and doused the flames to

protect nearby homes.  Santillan says crews “evacuated several customers to houses south of the fire because of the radiant heat.”  Some 75 firefighters and supportive personnel fought the blaze before containment. The cause of the fire is under investigation.  No one was injured.
