The American Red Cross was assisting residents of a Marysville apartment complex who were forced from their homes because of a fire on Sunday.

According to a Marysville spokeswoman, the fire started at an apartment, located at 320 Windsor Dr. shortly before 10 a.m.  The apartment building houses senior citizens, the spokeswoman said.

Fire officials said a potential cause of the fire was a woman cooking breakfast.

There was significant damage to the unit in which the fire began, and two other units were damaged.

Heidi Bishop found out the building was burning when a neighbor made a frantic call for help.

"When I looked back, there were flames pouring out of the door and the window. So I was really thankful that she came out and was able to get some help, and I was able to help her. It was pretty scary," Bishop said.

All the residents in the building’s five units were forced out of the building because it was without power after the fire. The building manager and the American Red Cross were helping tenants replace damaged belongings and find new places to stay.

Officials continued to investigate the cause of the fire.

No injuries were reported.
