Crews fought a big fire in downtown Newport Thursday.

The blaze broke out in a multi-unit apartment building on Central Street. With so many other nearby buildings at risk, it turned into a five-alarm response.

There were no reports of any injuries. Authorities say an electrical issue likely caused the blaze.

Four families in the apartment building were displaced and the Red Cross is providing assistance.
