A fire at an apartment in Lake Elsinore displaced 19 people Saturday, but no one was injured.

The blaze broke out just before 10 a.m. in the 300 block of North Langstaff Street, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Firefighters reported heavy smoke coming from the one-story building when they arrived and fire crews had to cut part of the roof open to vent the structure.

Three units were impacted by the fire, fire officials said, and the American Red Cross was requested to assist the 19 people who were displaced.
