FORT MYERS, FL- Residents of the Riverside Landings apartments are taking the first steps to rebuild their lives after a fire destroyed most of their belongings.  The flames ripped through the apartments after a blaze erupted in a neighbor's yard and quickly spread. Today the apartment dwellers moved to alternate units in the complex. Despite losing nearly everything the folks say they are thankful to be alive and there were no injuries. They say the material things can be replaced.
