PORT ALLEN - Local firefighters spent the night putting out a massive fire at an apartment complex in West Baton Rouge Parish.

It happened late Wednesday in the 800 block of Avenue A in Port Allen.

Parish fire officials believe the fire started on a stove in a lower unit, before spreading through the complex. It took crews more than an hour to get the fire under control.

No word on whether anyone was injured.

The Red Cross says it's assisting several displaced families.

The cause remains under investigation.
