MANHATTAN Kan, Fire officials are investigating a blaze that caused tens of thousands of dollars damage to a Manhattan home Sunday night.

Deputy Chief Ryan Almes said the blaze did more than $20,000 in damages to contents and $60,000 in damage to a home-turned apartment building in the 800 block of Colorado last night.

Crews were called to the blaze just before 10:00 p.m. and had the fire contained in about 20 minutes.

Officials say that the home had three apartments, and that five tenants living in the building were all displaced due to the fire. No injuries were reported.
