A fire broke out shortly after 8:30 a.m. at a Westside residential building this morning.

City firefighters evacuated residents from the rooftop and inside the building, a luxury apartment complex called Barrington Plaza. Eight individuals have reportedly been injured. One person is in critical condition. No fatalities have been reported. Firefighters fully contained the fire around 10 a.m. Arson investigators were at the scene, and the fire was deemed "suspicious."

In 2013 a fire erupted on the 11th floor of the building, which did not have a sprinkler system installed. It is unknown whether the affected floors have sprinklers installed.
