Fire officials today are continuing to investigate the cause of a fire that displaced 10 families in a Citrus Heights apartment complex on Saturday evening.
No one was injured. The blaze, however, caused significant damage to 10 units in the Edgewater Apartments on Sunrise Vista Drive, fire officials said Saturday night.
Assistant Chief Walt White of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said today that investigators have not been able to rule out outdoor cooking or improperly discarded cooking material as the source of the blaze.
The fire began on a second-floor patio deck at the back of the structure. Crews arrived at the fire at 7 p.m. and doused the fire in about 30 minutes.
The American Red Cross helped displaced families in need of shelter.
