SHIREMANSTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

Crews responded to a fire alarm at an apartment building on the 200 block of East Main Street in Shiremanstown just after 11 a.m.

A second alarm was called in for additional units to fight the blaze because heavy smoke was creating difficulties for firefighters.

The residents were home when the fire began, and crews were able to get it control.

No one was injured. Four people were displaced from the fire, and they are being helped by the Harrisburg Red Cross.

Officials believe it was an electrical fire.
