FRESNO (AP) — Fresno officials say 31 people have been displaced by a three-alarm fire at an apartment complex.

Fire officials say the blaze broke out at 8:43 a.m. Monday at the 16-unit building in east-central Fresno. No one was hurt, but six units were damaged by smoke and flames and the rest sustained water damage.

The Fresno Bee reports officials are investigating the cause of the fire, which led to an estimated $500,000 in damage. It’s unclear when the building can reopen to residents.

The American Red Cross is helping displaced residents find temporary shelter.
