A fire broke out in a multifamily building in Palatine on Sunday morning, displacing about 15 residents, the Palatine Fire Department said.

Firefighters called to the 3-story, 12-unit condominium building at 1453 Winslowe Drive arrived shortly after 8 a.m. to find heavy fire in a first-floor unit, according to a fire department news release.

No one was injured in the fire, but it did displace the occupants of three of the building's units, authorities said. Representatives of the American Red Cross were on hand to assist those residents.

The fire was brought under control shortly before 8:30 a.m., authorities said. Firefighters had to open a number of walls and ceilings in the building to extinguish the fire fully.

Investigators were still working Sunday to establish a cause for the fire. A damage estimate was not immediately available.
