The Atascadero Fire Department has released new information concerning the two story apartment complex that caught on fire Saturday afternoon.
It happened at the Bordeaux Apartments around 1:10 p.m. Saturday.
Upon arrival, firefighters found a large amount of fire in four apartment units that required numerous firefighting resources to contain the fire.
They say the fire spread quickly because the apartment complex did not have fire sprinklers.
There are three people with injuries: one with a laceration to the hand, one with smoke inhalation, and another experiencing chest pain.
It took about 40 firefighters to control the fire.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but crews know that the fire started in the patio area of Apartment E.
Theres an estimated $500,000 worth of damage to the property.
