City of Midland--An apartment fire broke out Saturday evening, leaving eight families displaced.
The Midland Fire Department responded to the structure fire at approximately 11:09 p.m. at an apartment unit in the 3600 block of Caldera to Waterford at North Park Apartments. The entire building where the unit was located was evacuated. No injuries were reported, and eight families were said to be displaced due to damage to the building.

The fire appeared to have started inside a common chimney chase way. Recent construction had been taking place in the area, so fire inspectors are currently looking into an electrical-related cause.
