Two families have been displaced after items stored too close to a water heater started a fire in Aurora Saturday night, according to a news release.
Firefighters from the Aurora Fire Department responded around 7:30 p.m. to a fire in a two-unit apartment building on the 600 block of High Street, according to officials. Upon arrival, they found smoke and a small fire in the basement.
Four fire companies fought the fire and were able to keep it contained to the basement. The estimated cost of damage to the structure is $5,000.
No injuries were reported. Fire officials said the two displaced families are staying with relatives.
