HOWARD (WKOW) – About 50 people are homeless after a fire destroyed most of an apartment complex in the town of Howard.

According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, the flames were reported at the Northern Pines Luxury Apartments late Saturday afternoon.

Authorities say all residents were successfully evacuated but some say they lost everything in the fire.

Howard, Green Bay and Pulaski firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze for several hours.  Officials say the south end of the 24-unit building was a total loss.

The Red Cross is assisting those displaced by the fire.

The cause of the fire was not immediately apparent and the investigation is ongoing.
