The fire started on the second floor of one of the Cedar Summit Estates apartment buildings, Airway Heights Fire Chief Mitch Metzger told KHQ.

Three units were damaged by the fire and another three sustained water damage.

Crews on scene told KHQ no one was injured and the American Red Cross of the Greater Inland Northwest would help those who were displaced.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
