The fire was reported in the 8800 block of Moody Road, located off Blue Lick Road, around 10:15 a.m. Friday.

Two residents in the building evacuated safely, Allendorf said.  One resident suffered minor burns from an ember but refused treatment at the scene.

Two apartments suffered fire and water damage, while the two below only suffered water damage. The fire started on a wooden deck area when "carelessly discarded smoking material" was able to spread in a wind-driven fire, Allendorf said.

Okolona fire officials said one resident's car was burned due to falling debris.
