Three apartment units were displaced early Tuesday morning as a fire forced residents to evacuate.

Huntsville Fire responded to the call of a structure fire shortly before 1:30 a.m.


Fire crews said no one was hurt in the fire.

When they arrived, they found one of the units in the 3700 block of 6th Avenue in flames.

Captain Frank McKenzie told WAAY 31 that the building had four units in total, but only three have people living in them. He added that the resident in the apartment that caught fire was not home at the time. He said neither she nor her car were present.

No one was hurt in the fire and McKenzie said that it appeared that the two occupied units where the fire didn't originate could likely move back inside.

Fire crews were able to essentially contain the flames to one apartment. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
