No one was injured but close to two dozen people were displaced from their homes after a three-alarm fire ravaged a Bel Air apartment complex Thursday morning, Harford County fire officials said.

It took firefighters about two hours to place the fire under control after it was reported at around 4 a.m. in the 200 block of Crocker Drive. Those whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the fire have been temporarily relocated to The American Legion on Hickory Avenue, Harford County fire officials said.

The Bel Air volunteer fire department said one apartment building was destroyed and two next to it were damaged. About 75 firefighters came to the scene, according to the volunteer fire company.
