One person has been displaced after a structure fire broke out at an apartment complex in south Reno early Thursday morning.

Reno Fire Department Battalion Chief John McNamara says dispatch received a call around 5:30 a.m. Thursday, April 20, for a structure fire at 1547 Delucchi Lane.

McNamara says crews were able to confine and extinguish the fire in an upstairs apartment, though the entire building is now affected by electrical issues.

Additionally, McNamara says there is damage to the surrounding buildings due to heat.

The Red Cross says they will be helping the person was displaced by the fire.

McNamara says one tenant and two firefighters were evaluated for smoke inhalation, but no one was transported to the hospital.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
