A fire late Saturday night damaged two units at the In The Pines apartment complex at 205 SE 16th Ave. No one was injured, according to Gainesville Fire Rescue.

Firefighters found that the flames had extended from the porches into the residences, the GFR reported. Firefighters contained the fire to the two apartments, which are now uninhabitable. The remaining six units in the building are secured while a fire investigation continues. The Red Cross is helping the displaced families.

A previous fire was reported at the same location last week, but no details were available Sunday about that incident.
