On November 4, 2016, about 4 am, a fire incident caused by unknown reason, took place at 3688 Cleveland Ave., Columbus, Ohio, one of a few apartment buildings owned and managed by Columbus Apartel.  The flame and smoke were so fierce that all the apartments on second and third floor were instantly engulfed and tenants had to flee from the besiege  of blaze in every brave way, leaving all of their valuables and belongings behind.  Thanks to our brilliant and courageous firefighters who arrived in no minutes upon the first ring of fire alarm in the building and fought with the fire skillfully, every single one of our tenant/residents was rescued or evacuated from the building on fire safely. However, most of their personal belongings were burnt or damaged.                                                                                                                                                                       Even though the buildings are covered by full commercial insurance from one of the nation's major insurers, tenants' personal property inside the rental apartment and their medical expense for the burn and wound caused by the fire while they tried to escape were not covered by the policy at all.   Although American Red Cross did timely give financial aid in cash form to all the suffering tenants, life became hard all of a sudden to quite a few of them due to the aftermath of this fire incident. Life could be very different from what they are living now if they had purchased Renters Insurance !                                                                                                       Available from most of the insurance companies,  Renters Insurance is a financial instrument that renters spend only a small amount of money to get a full and meaningful coverage when disaster in their rental premises transpires.
