More than 100 people were displaced Monday after a fire at an apartment building in Rockville. 

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service (MCFRS) responded to the 800 block of College Parkway around 8:50 a.m., according to MCFRS Chief Spokesperson Pete Piringer. Firefighters encountered heavy fire on the top floor that had already burned through the roof. MCFRS helped several people and pets out of the building, Piringer wrote on Twitter.

About 100 adults, 20 kids and some pets were displaced. Two civilians suffered non-life threatening injuries, Piringer said.

He said the cause appears accidental and HVAC-related. Damage is about $1.5 million.
