Officials say a Brattleboro, Vermont, fire that forced more than 40 people from their homes is now considered suspicious.

The fire broke out Saturday in a 12-unit apartment building at Valgar Street. There were no injuries, but the American Red Cross regional office reported that 45 people had been displaced.

Five of the apartments were reoccupied Tuesday and repairs are being made to the other seven units.

Police and fire officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
