The complex offers a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and town homes for rent, according to its website.
The blaze quickly spread through the roofs of multiple buildings. The entrance to the Meadowbrook Parkway and several streets near the complex were shutdown while firefighters worked.
