NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) Firefighters in metro Atlanta are trying to determine what caused a large fire to break out inside an apartment building where many residents had to be evacuated before dawn.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the fire early Monday damaged about half the 20 apartment units at The Reserve at Peachtree Corners. Gwinnett County fire Capt. Tommy Rutledge says police were evacuating residents door-to-door before firefighters arrived just after 3 a.m.

Rutledge says no injuries were reported from the blaze at the 30-year-old apartment building. He says several apartments were completely engulfed when the first firefighters reached the scene.
