A massive apartment fire at a Sandy Springs complex has left dozens of people without a home.

Officials say 20 units were damaged displacing about 18 families.

The building did not have sprinklers because it was built before an updated code.

Sources say the building was inspected weeks ago and had deficiencies. Property owners have 30 days to make adjustments. This fire happened within that 30-day window. No word on what the deficiencies were or whether they’re related to the cause of the fire.

No injuries were reported.

The fire remains under investigation.
