A two-alarm fire damaged an apartment at a northwest-side complex and displaced several residents Sunday night. 

The fire was reported shortly before 5 p.m. at the Catalina Canyon apartment complex at 2300 West Ina Road, near North La Cholla Boulevard, Trina Motto, a Northwest Fire spokeswoman said in a news release. 

When crews arrived they found heavy smoke and flames coming for a second-floor apartment and flames traveling to the patio of the unit above, the release said. 

Nobody was inside the apartment and the fire was extinguished within 16 minutes. 

Forty firefighters, six engine companies, two ladder companies, two rescue companies and several support units were involved in battling the blaze. 

The occupants of twelve apartments in the building where the fire happened are displaced until utilities are restored. 

Northwest Fire District's Community Assistance Team and the Southern Arizona Chapter of the Red Cross are helping residents find housing.
