Fire heavily damaged at least six apartments in a 12-apartment building at 1709 E. Cornwallis Road Friday afternoon, Durham Fire Chief Dan Curia said.

The complex is between N.C. 55 and Fayetteville Street.
Curia said nearly 40 firefighters were called to the blaze and had it under control by midafternoon, but were still working to put out “hot spots.”
No injuries were reported.
The fire’s cause was being investigated.
