Northport Apartments fire

Firefighters work to contain a fire Monday morning at the Northport Apartments, 749 Streeter Drive in North Sioux City. Firefighters from several departments responded to the blaze.

NORTH SIOUX CITY -- No injuries were reported in a Monday morning fire that destroyed an apartment complex in North Sioux City.

The fire, which temporarily displaced around 18 people, was believed to have been started by lightning, as severe thunderstorms moved through the region.

All residents were able to evacuate the Northport Apartments, said Nathan Beyer, the secretary and treasurer of the Lutheran Housing Corp., the owner of the complex at 749 Streeter Drive. Northport is open to individuals age 62 or older.

Lutheran Housing Corp. is currently working with the American Red Cross to secure housing accommodations for the Northport residents, Beyer said. 

Crews from several different fire departments were called to the apartment complex shortly before 9 a.m.

The building is considered a total loss.
