BOYLE HEIGHTS — The Red Cross is helping 10 people, seven adults and three children, with lodging after a fire broke out at their duplex apartment on Wabash Avenue this morning, according to the L.A. Fire Department.

It took more than 60 firefighters about half an hour to put out the blaze that broke out at about 11:30 a.m. in the 3100 block of Wabash. There were no injures, and the occupants of the undamaged neighboring apartment will be allowed to return, according to the LAFD.

The occupants of the damaged unit, however, will have to find housing elsewhere. In addition to lodging assistance from the Red Cross, the victims will also receive a S.A.V.E. card from the California Fire Foundation to help purchase supplies,  according to the fire department.
