An apartment complex appears to be a total loss and three families are displaced following a fire in Fergus Falls. People inside the complex could smell smoke coming out of the floorboards. The fire got in between the ceiling and the floor joist in the attic.

The fire began at a complex of three apartments in the 100 block of West Vernon Avenue around 9:40 last night. The blaze started in a bedroom, but the cause is undetermined.

Two people were in the two apartments on the upper level and the bottom level was empty.

The fire was put out around 1:30 in the morning, but crews monitored it until one this afternoon.

No one was injured and the state fire marshal is investigating the cause.

Fergus Falls Fire Chief says almost everything inside the apartments was lost because of heat and smoke damage.

Underwood and Elbow Lakes fire departments assisted the Fergus Falls Fire Department.
