Two-Alarm Fire at East-Side Apartment Building Contained

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Firefighters responded to a two-alarm blaze on Columbus's east side Tuesday morning.

The fire broke out just before 7AM at the Royal York apartment building on East Broad Street, near the Franklin Park Conservatory and across from east High School.

Pictures from the scene show heavy smoke damage from a unit on the building's 3rd floor, with the unit 6 stories tall.

Every resident in the building was safely evacuated, and a few were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

Crews are still working to determine a cause. The response by firefighters forced the closure of East Broad as they worked.
