FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Authorities say the residents of a senior citizens apartment complex in Virginia were evacuated after an electrical fire but that no one was injured.

Officials say the fire broke out Friday night around 9:30 p.m. in the Lockwood House complex in the 600 block of North Madison Street, which is on the Fairfax and Arlington County border. Deputy Fairfax County Fire Chief Chuck Ryan says the fire involved both electrical equipment and gas lines.

It was not clear when residents will be allowed to return to the building. The complex has about 100 apartments.
