No injuries were reported in an apartment fire on Southern Boulevard that started in a bottom-floor apartment about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.
The fire was discovered by a resident who lives in the apartment above the apartment that caught fire. She noticed the smoke on her way to work and got her family to safety and pounded on people’s doors to get them out of the building, reported 21 WFMJ-TV, The Vindicator’s broadcast partner.
Fire officials said a small fire was discovered on a mattress in the bottom apartment where no one was home. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
