Seven people from two apartments were displaced Saturday night after a fire in Sifton, according to the Vancouver Fire Department. The eight-unit building was saved.

Crews dispatched at 8:30 p.m. to Prairie View Apartments, 12611 N.E. 99th St., arrived to find fire blowing out of a third story window, according to a media release from the department.

Firefighters made an initial attack on the blaze while searching the building to make sure all occupants were safely outside, the release said.

The fire was brought under control in about 14 minutes, according to the department, which said firefighters worked to save as much of the occupants’ personal belongings as they could.

No injuries were reported. The Red Cross was called in to provide assistance to the people displaced by the fire, the fire department said.
