Vacant apartments burn for hours

Lexington firefighters spent much of Monday evening battling a fire at a vacant apartment building at Codell and Woodhill drives. The fire was "suspicious," Battalion Chief Randy Gilliam said.

The call about a fire at the former Saddlebrook Apartments came in at about 7 p.m. Firefighters were still on the scene at 10 p.m.

The entire complex is vacant, Gilliam said, and the electricity was off.
