Dozens displaced by apartment building fire in Plymouth

PLYMOUTH, Minn. — A multiple-alarm fire has forced dozens of people from a Plymouth apartment building.

Fire departments from as far away as Eden Prairie and Bloomington were called to help fight the fire that heavily damaged the 62-unit apartment building.
