BAKER- Three families are homeless after a fire burned down a four-plex apartment building in Baker. 

It happened on Singletary Drive this evening around 5:00. 

The blaze started when a soft drink machine caught fire in a vending building attached to one of the two buildings of Singletary Plaza apartments.

The fire spread throughout the south end of the building and swept across the attic of the unoccupied unit. 

Baker firefighters managed to bring the fire under control in about 30 minutes.

No one was hurt. The blaze is under investigation and arson is suspected.
