Crews respond to fire at gated community

Fire officials said two people were displaced by an overnight fire at gated community in suburban Lake Worth.

Around 3:47 a.m. Thursday, first responders were called to The Fountains located at 4070 Tivoli Ct. off of Lake Worth Road.

When crews arrived, smoke was coming from the second story of a three-story complex.

Firefighters entered the apartment and located the fire in a back bedroom. 

Residents on the third floor and second floor were evacuated for safety.

Crews were able to bring the fire under control quickly and prevent it from spreading to other apartments. The two residents of the unit were able to get out safely.

Fire investigators were on location throughout the morning determining the cause of the fire.

The Red Cross said they are assisting the people affected with food, clothing and temporary lodging.  

It’s unclear if anyone was hurt.
