RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -People from 16 west Reno apartments were displaced Wednesday afternoon by a fire, the Reno Fire Department said.

The total number of people displaced is because their apartments have no electricity, but the American Red Cross is helping those who need it.

The fire broke out about 2:40 p.m. at the Shoreline Plaza Apartments on Dickerson Road.

Fire officials say it happened when crews were working on a water heater in a downstairs apartment. The flames reportedly spread from the crawl space between the apartments to the attic.

There were no injuries.
