All residents had self-evacuated before firefighters got there.

According the investigators, the fire appears to have begun on a first-floor patio.

The flames caught onto a small fence surrounding the patio and spread vertically to the eaves and the apartment directly above.

Firefighters were able to access the building and limit the fire damage to those two units; but not before it displaced two families.

A second alarm request was transmitted for manpower as a result of the elevated temperatures.

The apartment complex was able to assist both families with on-site accommodations.

There were no reported injuries and though the point of origin was identified, the exact cause is undetermined.
