ATLANTA -- A fire broke out at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex Wednesday morning.

The fire was first reported at around 6:30 a.m. at the Park at Lakewood apartments on Delowe Drive. Flames were heaviest on the second floor of the building.

Fire officials said six units suffered damage, but a firewall prevented the blaze from spreading to the building's other six units.

There were no reports of any injuries, but a Fulton County Fire spokesperson said about 20 to 25 people were displaced, including several children.

As of 7:15 a.m., Fulton County firefighters were working to get the blaze under control. A MARTA bus arrived at the scene to give displaced residents a warm place to wait.
