OCEANSIDE - Dozens of Oceanside residents are displaced after a fire ripped through their apartment building early Monday morning.
A total of 14 apartments were damaged in the fire on Long Beach Road by Anchor Avenue. It took three hours for about 100 firefighters from several departments to quell the raging flames.
No injuries were reported.
Fire officials say the flames quickly spread from an apartment above the D&D Convenience Store. The building took heavy damage, and part of it has already been demolished because of unsafe conditions.
A total of 54 residents were affected by the fire, including 38 adults and 16 children.
The Red Cross was assisting the displaced residents with food, water, temporary housing and support.
