The fire was contained to the attic but water damage throughout the building has displaced the residents of all 24 apartments, fire officials said. The exact number of occupants in the building was unknown.
The fire was struck out at 5:20 a.m., fire officials said. No one was injured in the blaze and the Red Cross has been called to the scene to assist with the displacements.
