The Thursday morning fire started in the stairwell and did not reach any units, but four Sandy Springs families were displaced by the blaze. In August, a fire damaged eight units and displaced ten families at Versailles Apartments.

The cause of an overnight fire at Versailles Apartments in Sandy Springs appears to be electrical.

Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Scarbrough said a hanging light fixture in a stairwell fell and started the fire. Neither the blaze nor smoke reached apartment units but four families were displaced for safety precautions.

In August, a fire damaged eight units and displaced ten families at Versailles Apartments. At the time, investigators told CBS Atlanta that they believed the fire began in a ground floor unit when a resident left something cooking on his stove, unattended.

Versailles and Chastain Apartment properties are being sold to JLB Partners for conversion to a luxury residential mixed-use development. The sale is expected to be complete by spring 2013, and the management company has told residents they will try to help them find alternative housing.
