ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - More than 50 residents have been displaced following a fire at an apartment complex in Orlando.

Fire officials tell news outlets that crews were called to the Regency Gardens condominium around 2 p.m. Thursday.

Orlando police Cpl. Jason Engelhardt says officials made their way into the units to evacuate about 20 people and their pets.

Investigators say 22 units were damaged by the fire, which they believe started in some mulch and spread to the building. At least 58 people were displaced.

The American Red Cross is helping to assist those who were displaced.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
