(ANDERSON) - A fire consumed the second story of a Hoosier Woods apartment building Sunday afternoon, displacing 48 residents.

Anderson firefighters arrived on scene and immediately began battling the rapidly-spreading fire. All 16 residents home at the time of the fire were safely escorted outdoors by firefighters and neighbors who knocked on doors warning inhabitants about the fire above.

Neighbors on the scene said they first noticed small puffs of smoke that soon turned into flames and engulfed the roof of the building minutes later.

Anderson resident Brian Ross, 20, noticed the smoke while standing on the porch at a nearby apartment building and soon found himself in the burning building searching for children. Once inside, Ross saved two children who were in danger.
