RENO (KOLO) -- One condo unit was destroyed and at least two others were damaged by fire at 5021 Catalina Drive (near Meadowood Mall), according to firefighters.

There's no word on how the blaze at a 4-plex of condominiums broke out around 2:30 Monday afternoon.

The Reno Fire Department says everyone inside the building escaped safely, and no other injuries were reported.

RFD says the building was fully involved with fire when they arrived, and the blaze generated intense heat -- the siding of an adjacent building was melted. Firefighters could been seen cutting holes in the roof of the building where the fire apparently began to vent hot air.

The American Red Cross is offering assistance to the 11 people displaced by the conflagration.
