– A pre-dawn, two-alarm fire at an apartment complex on the Indianapolis northwest side has left more than two dozen people without homes.

No injuries were reported. Fire officials said 26 residents were displaced, and apartment managers were working to provide them with shelter.

Investigators estimated that the fire caused $250,000 in damages. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
