TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - One person died in an apartment fire in the 4900 block of Suder Avenue at Ottawa River Road.

Fire crews were called to the scene just after 7:30 a.m. Monday. They were able to get into the building to isolate the fire in the apartment in which it started. They confirm they found the victim in the burning apartment.

Other residents of the building were treated with oxygen for smoke inhalation. No one had to be taken to the hospital.

There are 12 units in the building, and emergency crews say all residents will have to find temporary shelter due to heavy smoke damage and the ongoing investigation. The Red Cross is assisting the victims.
