An apartment fire in Norfolk Wednesday night left at least 30 people without a place to live, according to the Norfolk fire department.

Units were dispatched to Pecan Point Road at about 9:35 p.m., Battalion Chief Stephanie Ramsey wrote in an email.

When they got there, they found heavy smoke and began an interior attack. The fire was already coming through the roof, though.

The fire was under control at 11:15 p.m.

Between 10 and 16 apartments were damaged, Ramsey said. No one was injured.

The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause.

The Red Cross is assisting the people who were displaced.
