FLORENCE, Ky. (WKRC) - At least 20 people have been forced from their apartments after an early morning fire in Florence. Only a handful of them will have to find another place to stay.

Crews were called to the Pine Lake Apartments on Pinehurst Drive at about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. Crews quickly knocked down the fire.

Five to seven people will have to find a new place to live after the fire damaged six apartments. One of them was not occupied.

There were two minor injuries. A firefighter was hurt coming down some stairs. A resident suffered minor smoke inhalation.

No word yet what may have started the fire but firefighters say it does not appear to be suspicious.
