The fire broke out around 10:40 p.m. Sunday on Kilcrush Court, damaging four units. About 65 firefighters responded to scene.

Montgomery County Fire spokesperson Scott Graham says heavy fire was showing on the second floor and the roof of the building. It took about 25 minutes to contain the blaze.

Graham says everyone got out safely and a cat was rescued.

Fourteen people are displaced due to a lack of utilities resulting from the fire, Graham says.

The Red Cross is assisting those displaced.

No injuries were reported.

Graham says the fire caused $250,000 in damages.
