A fire at a northeast Columbus apartment complex may have been caused by a bird’s nest in a porch light.

The fire was reported shortly after 8 a.m. at an apartment building on Cooper Colony Drive in Columbus.

According to firefighters at the scene, the fire appears to have started outside in the porch area between two units.

Investigators have ruled the fire accidental, saying that it came from a porch light where a bird had built a nest.

Everyone made it out of the apartments safely and no injuries were reported.

Two of the four units in the building were heavily damaged. The Red Cross was called to help make arrangements for the displaced families.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
