TOWN OF HOWARD - About 50 people are without homes after a fire destroyed most of an apartment complex in the town of Howard.

Flames were reported at the Northern Pines Luxury Apartments late on Saturday afternoon.

All residents were evacuated successfully but some say they lost everything.

It took firefighters from Howard, Green Bay and Pulaski several hours to extinguish the blaze.

The south end of the 24-unit building was a total loss.

The Red Cross is assisting those displaced by the fire.

The cause of the fire was not immediately apparent and is under investigation.
