HAMBURG, Ar. (KTVE/KARD) — Four families have been displaced after an apartment complex in Hamburg, Arkansas caught fire on Friday morning.

Heavy smoke from the fire caused Albritton Elementary School, which is across the street, to relocate students and faculty to another elementary school. They returned to Albritton Elementary after the fire was put out.

Officials say four apartments were damaged and no one was injured.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
