DETROIT (AP) - A fire has heavily damaged a sprawling 91-year-old Detroit apartment complex that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places but has been vacant for many years.

The Detroit Free Press reports that no one was injured in the fire Saturday at the abandoned Somerset Apartment complex, just east of the city's downtown.

The cause of the fire wasn't immediately reported.

The structure is a series of five connected multistory red brick buildings. It was built in 1922 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
