A fire forced two families from their homes Saturday night in Lexington.

Firefighters said the fire started around 11 p.m. while someone in the apartments was cooking.

Two units at an apartment complex on Larkin Road then caught fire.

According to crews, the structure of the building is okay, but the interior is damaged.

Firefighters said families will probably be out of their homes for about a week.

During that time, the apartment complex has found another place for the families to stay.
