WYNCOTE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say fire prompted the evacuation of one building in a high-rise apartment complex in suburban Philadelphia, but there were no immediate reports of severe injuries.

Emergency officials in Montgomery County said the blaze was reported just before noon Saturday at the Towers at Wyncote Apartments in Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County.

Initial reports indicated that the blaze occurred on the 11th floor of the 12-story building.

Officials said some people were being treated for smoke inhalation, but there were no immediate reports of more serious injuries. Officials said other buildings in the complex weren’t evacuated.
