A two-alarm fire at a Towson apartment complex led to an evacuation overnight.

Baltimore County firefighters were called to the Virginia Towers apartment complex late Sunday when residents found smoke in the hallways. Officials say a fire was then found in a trash compactor, and smoke extended to several floors.

Firefighters contained the fire in the trash compactor, but more personnel were called in to help get residents out of the building.

About 20 residents were evacuated from the building and were given shelter on buses. The residents were allowed to return to their homes shortly after 1:15 a.m. Monday.

No injuries were reported in the incident. An investigation on the cause of the fire continues.
