    Investigators are still working to figure out what sparked a fire in Temple Hills that displaced more than two dozen people Friday.

    Firefighters were called to the fire in a condominium building at 3122 Brinkley Road at about 4:30 p.m. Friday and found fire showing from the top floor, according to a blog post by Prince George's County spokesman Mark Brady.

    The fire went to two alarms as it spread to the attic of the building.

    All residents were evacuated and none were hurt -- but one firefighter suffered a knee injury and was sent to a local hospital.

    The County Citizen Services Unit and American Red Cross are assisting those displaced.

    The cause of the fire is under investigation and fire loss is still being estimated.
