MIDLAND - A fire has damaged 16 apartment units at a Midland apartment complex.

The fire started just before 9:30 Sunday morning at the Coventry Pointe Apartments in the 3300 block of West Wadley. Heavy smoke was reported pouring from the attic of building 11 where the fire started.

There were no injuries reported although one woman was taken to the hospital because her medication was in her apartment.

Firefighters were able to stop the fire from jumping to other buildings, but the fire was able to spread quickly due to a common space attic that ran from the north end to the south end of the building.
