A six-unit apartment building in Delhi is a total loss, following a major fire there this (Tuesday) morning. Firefighters were called to the blaze at about 3am when Sheriff's Deputies saw smoke coming from one of the units. Delhi is in Jersey County between Jerseyville and Godfrey.
Brighton - Betsey Ann Fire Chief Jason Bowman tells The Big Z everyone was able to escape the building without injury.
Highway 67 was closed in Delhi for several hours as fire crews had to run a supply hose across the highway.

A donation drop off point has been established at the bar across the highway from the apartments to assist those who have been displaced by the fire. Clothing is being accepted at "Whiskey Creek" during regular business hours, 10am-1am. The QEM, Godfrey Fire, Brighton Betsy-Ann, and Jerseyville fire departments all responded to the fire.
