"Everybody was out," Maddison said. "Nobody was hurt."
Maddison said the house was split up into three apartments. Although the building wasn't totally destroyed, it is uninhabitable due to fire, smoke, and water damage. No monetary estimate of damages is available.
Fire departments from Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti Township, Pittsfied Township and Superior Township assisted in putting the fire out.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
