Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews responded to a fire at a small apartment complex in northeast Lincoln on Friday evening.

Residents at 2201 N. Cotner Blvd. were evacuated shortly after 7 p.m. and firefighters spent several hours working to put out the blaze that caused part of the roof of the building to collapse, according to fire investigator Jason Relford.

No injuries were reported.

Multiple streets in the area remained closed for part of the day Saturday, and temporary fencing was installed around the building because it had not been deemed safe.

A structural engineer will perform an assessment before an investigation can begin, Relford said.
