HARLEM (PIX11) -- At least 11 apartments have been damaged after a 3-alarm fire tore through a Harlem building.

FDNY officials say the fire started on the fifth floor of the 6-story building on West 112th Street.

Red Cross is assisting residents that may have been displaced.

Tenants will not be allowed back into the building until Department of Buildings does a survey, which is being delayed.

Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the fire, which is deemed "suspicious" as of now.

Officials say there were hoarding-like conditions inside of the apartment.
