Duluth Fire Department Deputy Chief Erik Simonson said they don't know how the fire started yet, and they are still investigating. 

Simonson said anywhere from 30 to 50 people were displaced and no one appeared to be seriously injured. He said a few people were treated for minor smoke inhalation.

The American Red Cross is helping by providing shelter, transportation, food and clothing at Temple Israel in Duluth for those affected by the fire. 

According to the Oliver Management website, it's an family and disabled, affordable housing complex with 20 apartment units.

Damage is estimated at over $900,000, and the building is said to be a total loss.
