56 residents are displaced following a 2-alarm fire at Kris Leigh Catered living facility in Anne Arundel County. 

Just before 5 p.m. firefighters responded to the 800 block of Ritchie Highway after receiving a 911 call about a reported small fire by a staff member.

When fire crews arrived to the scene, there was heavy smoke filling several floors of the four-story senior center.

Members of the Kris Leigh Catered living facility are contacting residents' family members to notify them about temporary accommodations at nearby facilities in Gambrills and Davidsonville. 

No injuries have been reported and the cause for the fire remains under investigation.

There is no word when the facility is expected to reopen at this time.
