GREENSBORO, N.C. — Six units of a condo building in southern Greensboro were damaged after a fire early Wednesday morning.

Authorities said the fire started on the third floor just after midnight in the 3700 block of Morris Farm Drive, north of Wendover Avenue on the Greensboro/High Point border.

Fire officials said no serious injuries were reported, but one person was treated on the scene for smoke inhalation.

Six of the 12 apartment units were damaged. Officials said families in the complexes were evacuated and told to sleep elsewhere.

Officials said the cause of the blaze has not been determined.

Tipsters told FOX8 that flames were shooting through the roof. A FOX8 photographer on the scene said the building sustained significant smoke and water damage.

A firewall prevented the flames from spreading to the other side of the structure, fire officials said. However, nobody who lives in the building will likely be allowed to sleep there overnight, fire officials said.
