Eleven people, including five children, were in need of shelter early Sunday when a fire broke out at an Auburn Gresham neighborhood building on the South Side.

Firefighters responded to the blaze about 1 a.m. in the 8700 block of South Winchester, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

No was injured, but six adults and five children were displaced when the building was rendered uninhabitable, Knight said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
