A fire Monday morning at the Kingstowne West Apartments on Bloomfield Road displaced five families, according to authorities.
The cause of the fire, reported about 10 a.m., is still under investigation. Macon-Bibb County Fire Department officials haven’t been able to talk to the occupant of the apartment where the fire started, District Fire Chief Stephen Stafford said.
One apartment sustained major damage, and four others received smoke and water damage. The American Red Cross met with families on the scene and helped them with immediate needs, including food, clothing and lodging.
Stafford said smoke detectors in the apartments alerted other tenants to the fire.
