Nearly 50 residents have been displaced after fire broke out at the Creekwood Apartments on Highway 70 South. The American Red Cross has set up shelters at Bellevue Church of Christ and Bellevue Middle School to help displaced residents.

The same apartment complex caught fire back in November of 2000.

In that incident, 16 units were destroyed while firefighters struggled with water issues.

No one was hurt. 

Investigators later determined the flames started after a tenant accidentally left the stove on in  one of the units.
