MT. MORRIS TOWNSHIP (WJRT) - (05/29/14) - A fast moving fire that destroyed at least three townhomes, in Mt. Morris Township Wednesday, is still under investigation.

The call for help, at Cranbrook Village, went out about 5 p.m.

At least three units, at the complex, are now boarded up. Responders had said as many as 12 families were displaced.

A Michigan State Police fire investigator was there, looking through what remains, Thursday morning.

All he's saying right now is that the cause remains under investigation.

"I happen to look up and I seen smoke coming from the back," said resident Fraddie Lee.

Lee lives about four doors down from where the fire was, Wednesday.

She said she was just getting home as it was getting going.

"My daughter said they (sic) probably barbecuing and I said, 'Nah, that's a fire. Call the fire department.' I was concerned about the others in the house," she said. "When the police came, he asked if everybody was out and we said we didn't know."

Everyone made it out OK.

Lee's neighbor, 9-year-old Ceana Washington, went door to door to help make sure of it.

The Red Cross is helping families impacted by the fire.
