One firefighter was treated at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators said the fire caused three homes to collapse. Other homes sustained extensive fire, soot, and water damage.
Officials added that the intense heat from the fire also caused extensive heat-related damage to multiple other nearby homes.
Investigators said the fire originated within the rear area of one of the middle units.
At this time, the fire marshall is looking to determine a cause.
Officials said there were no injuries but preliminary estimates for property loss are valued at $5 million.
