ORANGE - Firefighters battled a five-alarm apartment building fire yesterday that required more than 100 residents to be evacuated.

No residents were injured in the fire at the five-story building in Orange, which broke out shortly before 8 a.m. and eventually spread to three other buildings.

Authorities believe the fire began on the top floor of the apartment building on Lincoln Avenue, but the cause was not immediately known.

A temporary shelter was set up by the Red Cross at Orange High School for those affected by the fire. The Red Cross says 37 people stayed in the shelter last night.

Fire officials and building inspectors are still trying to survey the damage and gauge the structural integrity of the building to determine if it's safe to go back inside.

Residents are now working with city agencies to get themselves identification and other essential documents.
