An apartment fire in Crawford County displaces two families from their homes.

The fire started around 1pm Sunday afternoon at the Roberta Housing Authority in Roberta.

The Crawford County Fire Department says the blaze started in a home after the stove was accidentally left on. The fire then spread to the house next door.

One family of three and another family of four lived in the homes.

"The fire went up into the wall into the attic system and therefore catching the neighbors house on fire as well." -- Randall Pate, Crawford County Fire Department Chief

Luckily no one was injured. Both families say they'll stay with family members who live near by.
