There were more than 50 code violations at the San Bernardino apartment complex where a fire destroyed 26 units, according to a report.

The fire broke out Sunday in the 400 block of South Mount Vernon.

Seven people suffered minor injuries and about 125 residents were displaced.

Code enforcement officials said violations included exposed electrical wires and electric stoves not working properly, which possibly caused sparks, according to the San Bernardino Sun.

Investigators are still looking into what started the fire that caused more than $1 million in damage.
