An overnight apartment fire has left 67 people without a place to stay. According to Henderson Fire Department Chief Danny Wilkerson, firefighters responded to 500 South Cooper Drive around 2:18 a.m., and found a single-story apartment building on fire.

All 67 residents staying in the building, described as a facility that houses seniors, were moved to a temporary shelter, which was set up at a local church.

Twelve people were treated for smoke inhalation by EMS crews at the scene.

No cause has yet been determined, and the SBI has been called to the scene to assist in the investigation.

There is no word yet on a cause. The Red Cross is assisting displaced residents.
