Crews battled flames as they spread through the structure. They were able to extinguish the fire by 11:40 p.m.

Seven adults and four children were displaced by the fire, according to Fire Media Affairs. No injuries were reported.

The American Red Cross was on the scene early Tuesday to provide assistance to those affected.
