    Around 60 people were forced from their homes as Dallas Fire Rescue battled a five-alarm apartment fire in Dallas Thursday morning.

    The fire was reported at the Courtney Place Apartments, a two-story apartment building on 3200 Chapel Creek Drive, at about 7:20 a.m.

    DFR officials say 24 units were damaged in the fire, but no injuries have been reported.

    The five-alarm fire sent 100 firefighters to the scene to help fight the fire.

    The Red Cross will be providing relief supplies at the scene of the fire for the families that have lost their homes. They report 60 people were forced out by the fire.

    Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fire.
