CYPRESS, Calif. (AP) - About 200 residents are assessing the damage after a two-alarm fire emptied their apartment building for the night, shutting off power and burning units and cars.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1dMlvzq) more than four dozen firefighters put out the blaze after about an hour. The investigation into what caused the blaze is ongoing.

Five cars were totaled and three were damaged at a cost of about $150,000. The cost of damage to the 44-unit building is around $700,000, including two apartments damaged by fire and three more that were impacted by water and smoke.

No one was injured. The Red Cross of Orange County and a nearby recreation center helped residents with basic needs and shelter.
