HIGHLAND PARK - A Highland Park apartment complex was badly damaged by fire twice in a week’s span.

A fire broke out at the Orchard Gardens complex on the 300 block of South 10th Street just before 8 p.m. Friday.

The fire quickly spread to other units, prompting fire departments from several nearby towns to come by to assist. There were no reports of any injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

This is the same complex that had a fire break out in the early morning hours of Aug. 20. Residents were able to escape, and no one was hurt in that fire, either.

Officials say the cause of this fire does not seem to be suspicious, but are still trying to determine how it started.
