Unattended food while cooking to blame for Westwood fire

WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati fire crews say unattended food while cooking is to blame for a fire in Westwood.

Initial arriving fire units reported light smoke from the top floor of a three story (12) unit apartment complex.  The fire was quickly knocked down and the building was quickly cleared of smoke.
