KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Missouri Firefighters had a busy night battling apartment fires and brutally cold temperatures on the opposite sides of the metro on Wednesday morning.

A blaze damaged several apartments on the south side of the city in the 11400 block of Holmes around 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning. The 3-alarm blaze displaced 11 people from their homes, but there were no injuries reported.

There is no word on the cause of that fire.

Another fire, this time in the Northland, damaged several apartments at the Wau-Lin-Cree Apartments near Highway 152 and North Prospect around 3:15 a.m. Authorities say that the fire started in an attic area, and was difficult to fight due to the height of the apartments.

The blaze displaced eight people, including two children, from their homes. There were no reports of injuries in the fire.

The American Red Cross is assisting displaced victims at both fire scenes.
