LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) Firefighters are ordered out of an apartment building after fire races into the attic.

It happened Monday afternoon in the 800-block of Grove Street in La Crosse.

The fire department says it was called out to a shrub on fire.
But when crews got there, there were flames on the side of the building and in the attic.

They searched to make sure no one was inside, then were ordered out because of the threat of collapse.

They say the building has heavy damage, but no one was hurt.

Red Cross resources are being made available to support these residents, meeting their immediate needs for food, clothing, and temporary housing.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
