Some two dozen people were evacuated when a fire ripped through a condominium complex on Willowbrook Road in Westminster early Monday morning.

The three-alarm fire broke out shortly before 5 a.m. It took firefighters about an hour to put out the flames.

Three, two-story units were heavily damaged. Fire officials said the building's metal roof made firefighting more of a challenge.

Investigators said the fire may have started in a heavily-damaged vacant unit. The cause is under investigation.
