Investigators remained on the scene Monday of a Lawrence apartment fire that displaced several residents Sunday afternoon, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical Division Chief Eve Tolefree said.

Fire officials were working to identify a cause and damage estimate after the two-alarm blaze at Rose Gardens Apartments, Fifth and Wisconsin streets, which left heavy damage to three of the five apartment units.

The fire was reported just after 4 p.m. Sunday. All of the residents made it out of the complex safely.
