Residents were home at the time of the fire but no injuries were reported, he said.

An electrical panel was damaged causing the tenants of six units to leave their home for the night, he said. The American Red Cross is assisting with vouchers for food, clothing and lodging, he said.

Fre companies from Fairton and Rosenhayn assisted the department in extinguishing the blaze.
