NORTH RANDALL, Ohio -- Dozens of residents were displaced and two people were injured in a fire at an apartment building in North Randall Tuesday morning.

The fire broke out at just before 10 a.m. in a third floor apartment in the building on Warrensville Center Road.

The two people taken to the hospital lived on the third floor; however, they did not live in the unit which was on fire.

One person was admitted to the hospital; another person was treated and released.

The fire department rescued some people off their balconies when they arrived.

About 65 residents were displaced; the Red Cross is working to find temporary housing for those who need it.

The fire was contained to one unit on the third floor, so that floor had heavy smoke and water damage. There was damage to both the first and second floors as well.

A cause is still being investigated.

*Editor's note: This script was updated to reflect new information from authorities: About 65 residents were displaced; earlier, the fire department reported about 100 residents were affected.**
