Woman Gets Grandkids Out After Apartment Fire

May 20, 2014, 5:00 PM by Matt Holsen

Woman Gets Grandkids Out After Apartment Fire
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

People living in an apartment near 10th Street and Cleveland Avenue are without a home after an overnight fire. It happened just after 10 p.m. Monday.

Kim O'Brien was sleeping when she heard the fire alarm go off. She quickly wrangled up her grandkids and got out.

"The hallway is filling up with smoke, so we grab the kids and we waited out here for 2.5 hours to see if we could get our cats out," O'Brien said.

After getting her cats, O'Brien hasn't been back inside her apartment and doesn't know when she'll get the chance. She spent the night with friends in Lennox. Sioux Falls Police investigators along with Fire Rescue are investigating the fire as a possible arson.

"Really they're both doing the same thing," Clemens said. "Trying to determine what started the fire, where the origin was. They work hand in hand all the time. As far as the investigation goes, it ends up falling with the police department because there could be criminal charges that come from that. They basically work hand in hand with any of those fires that are suspicious in nature."

Officials aren't saying what was suspicious about the fire. In the meantime, residents like O'Brien are still dealing with what was an emotional night.

"I'm still shaken up. We don't have a home now. I just panicked. We all panicked. We're all sitting in the back and in the front thinking what do we do? Some people had their cats with them. We had to grab the grandkids or the cats, we grabbed the grandkids," O'Brien said.
