A family of four was displaced from their apartment when a fire was discovered around 1 AM.  Wayne Township firefighters fought the fire at the Chapel Hill Townhomes at 7616 W St. Clair St. on the west side.

There were no injuries, but about $15,000 in smoke and fire damage.  A teenage son noticed a smell of burning plastic and alerted the family to escape.  The fire was brought under control in 15 minutes, but there is no cause yet.
