MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Officials from the American Red Cross say the agency is helping 16 families that were displaced in a fire that destroyed part of an apartment complex in Marietta.

American Red Cross regional spokeswoman Sherry Nicholson told the Marietta Daily Journal (https://bit.ly/1L0yaIn ) that 24 adults and 12 children are being offered temporary housing assistance after a fire severely damaged a building at the Crestmont apartments Monday morning.

Marietta city spokeswoman Lindsey Wiles has said three people were hospitalized but none suffered serious injuries.

Assistant Fire Chief Tim Milligan says one person jumped to safety and possibly suffered broken bones in the fall.

Milligan says all of the building’s occupants were accounted for after the fire and the cause is under investigation.
