VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Four families are without homes after a fire broke out inside an apartment complex in Vancouver late Wednesday night.

The Vancouver Fire Department said firefighters were called to the Aurora Apartments in the 8100 block of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard around 11 p.m.

Crews said they arrived to see smoke coming from the side of the three-story complex. Firefighters quickly entered the structure and found a sprinkler-controlled fire in a second-floor unit. They were able to knock out the fire within 15 minutes.

All residents made it out of the complex safely and no injuries were reported.  

Crews said due to the sprinkler activation, water damage to several units displaced four families. The American Red Cross assisted the displaced residents.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
