— Three people were displaced by an apartment fire at 210 Purefoy Road early Friday. No one was injured.

The fire started in one apartment unit around 4:30 a.m. One of the residents woke up and told neighbors to get out, according to Chapel Hill firefighters.

One unit had fire damage, and the one below it had water damage, officials said.

There was no word on the cause of the fire.

Firefighters called the Red Cross to help tenants, while the third person found shelter elsewhere.
