The Smyrna Fire Department is investigating the cause of a fire that affected 10 families at the Cortland at the Village apartment complex over the weekend.
The first fire crews responded to the scene at 2027 Lake Park Drive in Smyrna at 5:45 p.m. Saturday and worked for nearly four hours to clear the complex. No injuries were reported, according to Eric Farmer, fire department spokesman.
Red Cross of Georgia spokeswoman Sherry Nicholson told the MDJ that volunteers helped 23 displaced people with temporary shelter, food, clothing and personal care items.
The weekend fire follows a fire that broke out two and a half weeks prior at the same apartment complex, which was previously known as Village at Lake Park. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the June 30 fire.
