Lake Odessa, Mich. (WZZM) - Residents of a Lake Odessa apartment complex had to leave their homes when a fire began Wednesday afternoon.

Ionia County Central Dispatch reports on its E911 Facebook page that crews are on the scene of Lakewood Manor in the 1000 block of Emerson Street.

Dispatchers say there are no reports of injuries and the American Red Cross is on its way to help the evacuees. They also are asking people to avoid the area of the apartment building so emergency crews can do their work.

We have a crew heading to the scene and we will bring you more information as soon as it is available.
