A fast-moving fire early Saturday at an apartment complex in Toledo, Ohio, destroyed eight buildings and left more than 100 people homeless, authorities said.

No injuries were reported.

Fire officials said the blaze was reported at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Toledo fire assistant chief Luis Santiago said residents of the complex on the city's south side reported that fireworks had been set off in the area just before the fire.

Santiago said the fire spread through the attics of the interconnected buildings.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army set up a shelter for displaced residents at a nearby high school.
