A fire ripped through an apartment building in Lakewood this afternoon.
The fire at the East Kennedy building broke out around 1:30 PM.
The fire has been upgraded to a Second Alarm as flames can be seen billowing from building.
The crews are having an issue with water due to frozen hydrants.

Approximately eight apartments were affected, officials tell TLS. Multiple families have been displaced.
An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
