Denmark, WI -- Everyone is safe, and most have returned to their rooms Sunday afternoon after an early morning apartment fire. 

According to the Denmark Fire Department, the fire started around 4 a.m. Sunday. 

Fire crews were called out to the 300 block of Danish Way. Those are the Scandinavian Village Apartments. 

The apartments had a sprinkler system so that helped with putting out the fire. Everybody was able to escape the building safely. 

The fire chief said the fire started in one of the apartments around a stove area. 

The cause is under investigation. According to the fire chief, the cause doesn't look suspicious. 

No one was injured, and the power has been turned back on and families can get back into their homes. 

The Red Cross is helping those living within the three damaged units.
