PLEASANTVILLE, N.J. (AP) - Twenty-nine residents were displaced when a fire broke out at a senior housing complex in southern New Jersey, but no injuries were reported.

Authorities say the fire broke out shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday in a fifth-floor apartment at the Villages at St. Peter’s complex in Pleasantville. The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1fT6Csf) reports that firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, but about a third of the complex’s 73 units sustained water and smoke damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The 14,000-square-foot facility opened in 2012 at the site of the former St. Peter Catholic Church convent on the Black Horse Pike.

The American Red Cross was assisting the displaced residents with temporary housing and other needs.
