Seven families are without a home Sunday after their apartment units burned down in a fire.

Bellmead fire officials say they were called to the blaze at the Bordeaux Apartments at 12:20 a.m., and fire crews from Waco, Lacy-Lakeview, and Elm Mott assisted in dousing the flames.

Crews battled the flames until around 6 a.m.

While nobody was injured, the apartment building which housed eight units was a total loss.

The Red Cross is aiding the families with shelter and basic needs.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
