    More than two dozen are homeless after their apartments were destroyed in a fire. It took Upper Merion firefighters more than five hours to completely put out the blaze because the flames were gas-fueled. (Published Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015)

    More than two dozen people have been displaced after a fire ripped through an apartment building in Montgomery County Wednesday morning.

    The fire started about 1:30 a.m. at the Abrams Run Apartments on Bill Smith Boulevard in King of Prussia.

    The fire was officially declared under control about 5:45 a.m. after crews were able to shut off a gas line that was burning due to the fire.

    Thirty residents have been displaced and 16 units were either damaged or destroyed during the fire.

    There were no reports of any injuries.

    The clubhouse at the apartment complex is being turned into a temporary shelter. The Red Cross is expected to assist those in need.

    The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
