The building's sprinkler system was able to put out the flames and contain the fire damage to the one unit. However, a battalion chief with the St. Cloud Fire Department says the water damage is fairly significant.

The Red Cross and St. Cloud HRA are assisting in helping the displaced residents with temporary housing.

There is no damage estimate.
