Thanks to an alert from their smoke detector, the two residents had already gotten out of the home safely.

Fire crews say they were able to get the fire under control pretty quickly.

One person was treated for smoke inhalation.

Officials say the damage is contained to the apartment where the fire started.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
