PLEASANTVILLE — Firefighters responded to a house fire Friday on South Main Street at the intersection of Floral Avenue.
Batallion Chief Scott Trythall said the fire department received multiple calls at about 6:30 a.m. of a fire at the multi-family home on the 1300 block of South Main.
The fire was in the attic and second floor of the home was showing heavy smoke when fire crews arrived, Trythall said.
The fire was under control by 7 a.m., he said.
Ten occupants were evacuated from the two-story home and were being treated by AtlantiCare medical providers from the EMS Task Force.
Trythall said the home has moderate damage and is uninhabitable. The multi-family house was split into several rooms and apartments, he said.
The Red Cross was called to assist the residents.
