Cleveland Fire crews are still on the scene of a triple, two-alarm fire on the city's west side. Although the blaze is out, crews are checking for hot spots.

Officials say the fire broke out at a four-apartment complex over a commercial building near West 67th Street and Denison Avenue on Tuesday afternoon. Three units were not occupied, and police say a family of six may have been living in the fourth unit, but were not home at the time. It appears two of the apartments were being renovated.

An apartment near a house was where the fire started, according to crews. There was a partial collapse in that apartment, along with the home.

Three people were inside the home when the fire began. A woman in a wheelchair was carried out by the battalion chief. 

CFD had 13 companies on the scene.

One firefighter sustained minor injuries on his hand and was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center for treatment. 

The cause of the fire is undetermined. 

Nearly a dozen people were evacuated from their homes. Utilities services have been called, along with the Red Cross to assist.
