Deadly overnight apartment fire in Frayser

An overnight apartment fire turned deadly in Frayser.  Police tell us a 27-year-old man died at the Overlook Apartments on 3099 Steele Street just off of Whitney Avenue.

Officials responded to the fire just before 4am.  Investigators say it on the second floor of the building and burned through eight units, although only two of those units were occupied.  The fire spread through a common attic which made the blaze particularly hard to knock out.

Several others suffered smoke inhalation.  No one had to be transported.

We'll have more on this story on Action News 5 at Noon.
