Early this afternoon McMinnville Fire Department crews responded to a fire at 429 SE Baker. The fire would quickly be upgraded to a two alarm blaze.

According to public records the 17 unit building is home to more than 20 individuals and one of the precious few small apartment buildings in Mac.

Early indications are that all residents of the building made it out safely. Many congregated outside with pets in their arms crying while watching the destruction.

Crews were ordered to vacate and take a defensive stance not long before the roof of the structure collapsed.
