Crews spent much of early Friday morning putting out a massive fire that broke out in a Little Havana apartment building.

Miami Fire Rescue says the fire broke out before 3 a.m. near the intersection of Southwest 7th Street and 10th Avenue, with at least a dozen families displaced as a result from the two-story building.

No injuries were reported at this time. The American Red Cross, who is assisting families at this time, says a total of 47 people were rescued with 22 being children from the 12 units involved.

Investigators said the fire caused major damage to the electrical room, which caused the displacement of residents.
