PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Emergency crews in Portland are dealing with a fire at an apartment building off Forest Avenue Sunday.

The fire was first reported around 9:30 PM Sunday.

Crews responded quickly to the scene but the flames had already done a lot of damage by the time they arrived.

Residents say everyone made it out safely but they are still trying to account for pets.

The home is near the train tracks that bisect Woodford's Corner. Emergency dispatchers do not believe that train service is affected.

At this point it is too early to pinpoint a cause but investigators are not calling it suspicious.
