Missoula city firefighters continue at this hour to battle a large fire burning in the third floor of the Vantage Villa apartment complex on east Broadway. The fire broke out mid-afternoon, and quickly spread to at least two third floor apartments. It appears all the residents got out safely. Several fire trucks are on the scene, including a ladder truck hosing down the roof. The apartment complex is owned by the Missoula Housing Authority.
