FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — Twenty units were destroyed or heavily damaged and as many as 50 people will be displaced due to a four-alarm fire that ravaged a Fullerton apartment complex Sunday night.

The blaze was first reported about 8:30 p.m.

A  resident of the 200-apartment complex said a car was on fire in the carport. The fire quickly spread.

Brittney Hopper, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, said at least 20 units were destroyed or heavily damaged. Fifty residents will be displaced by the fire.

The intense fire forced an evacuation of the three-story building located in the 2700 block of Associated Road.

As of 9:30 p.m., the fire was still active.

One firefighter was reportedly injured. He was taken to St. Jude’s. There is no word on his condition.

An investigation into the cause of the crash will go on through the evening, said a fire official.
