A Friday morning fire at a Henderson apartment complex displaced 19 people, Henderson Fire Department spokeswoman Michelle French said.

The fire happened just before 4 a.m. in building 16 of Mulberry Park Apartments, at 730 Center St. in Henderson. Responders found a stove fully engulfed after residents had been cooking and were unable to put the blaze out themselves, French said.

It took 15 minutes to extinguish the fire, French said.

No injuries were reported, though 10 adults and nine juveniles were displaced. Damage is estimated at $290,000.
