- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage Fire Department says three families had to leave their homes after an eastside fire. The department was called to a fire just after 3 a.m. Wednesday at a four-unit apartment building in the Mountain View neighborhood. Firefighters say the fire began in a second-floor home and was pronounced under control after about a half hour. Fire Department Capt. Richard Minkler tells Channel-2 News that 10 people inside the building and their pets made it out safely. He says the building mostly was damaged by smoke and can be salvaged.
