About 20 people are still displaced following a Sunday night structure fire that gutted several apartment units in Redwood City, according to the American Red Cross.

American Red Cross spokeswoman Jennifer Sturm said the organization is assisting the displaced residents with necessities like food, shelter and clothes.

Redwood City firefighters responded at 7:06 p.m. to the 12-unit complex at 950 Regent Court. The fire was under control by 8 p.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Fire officials said the fire gutted two apartment units, and a third sustained significant damage.

The damage to the building was estimated at $250,000 and the damage to the residents' possessions was estimated at $50,000.
