PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Paragould officials are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed an apartment building.

The blaze happened Sunday night in the 400-block of Main Street.

Paragould Fire Chief Kevin Lang said six apartment buildings were involved. Two people were in the building at the time of the fire, but they were not injured according to Lang.

A man, who was across the street at the time of the fire, said he heard what sounded like two explosions before the fire started.

The fire reportedly started on the bottom floor Lang said. However, the cause of the blaze has not been determined.

Lang said the building is a complete loss.

The American Red Cross is assisting those who lived in the building.
