The same Pasadena complex that caught on fire just shy of two years ago, had another blaze break out in its apartments Friday.

According to Pasadena's Chief Fire Marshall, they received a call at 1:36 p.m. and the fire was fully engaged when they arrived at Veranda Village Apartments. Of the 20 to 24 unites affected, two were declared a total loss.

There were no injures but some firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion.  Seventy-five firefighters responded, some of them from volunteer units.
