    Several people were displaced by an apartment complex fire in Fort Worth Wednesday morning.

    The fire happened at the Woodstock Apartments on Boca Hill Circle at 8:20 a.m.

    "Engine 20 got on scene and they had smoke that was visible," said Fort Worth Fire Department Battalion Chief Richard Harrison. "They investigated and discovered they had a fire in an upstairs apartment."

    Firefighters were able to contain the fire quickly. They are not sure where it started, but the fire had already spread to the attic of one of the units.

    "The fire was primarily in one unit, but we did have some smoke and water damage to the unit below,”" said Harrison. "If anybody was living in those units they will be displaced."

    The unit where the fire started was not occupied.

    The family who lived in the unit below was assisted by the Red Cross.

    "Not sure what started the fire," said Harrison. "That will just take a little bit for the investigators to sift through."

    No one was injured.
