ORLANDO, Fla. - More than 40 people are displaced after a fire broke out at an Orlando apartment complex, according to the Orlando Fire Department.

Fire officials said 42 people, including 25 children, were unable to return to their homes after the blaze affected 10 units and 11 families at Windsor Cove Apartments.

Burned insulation is still scattered across the ground in front, as the American Red Cross was at the scene to offer assistance to the displaced families.

"We can provide temporary housing, whether it's setting them up in a hotel for the time being," said Janice Moran with the American Red Cross. "Whether its eyeglasses, medication, clothing, whatever their emergency needs are since they would've lost it in the fire."

No injuries were reported in the fire, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, firefighters said.
