Fire crews extinguished the blaze, which was reportedly confined to the lower level of the apartment.

The department says one tenant sustained a minor injury outside the apartment. The tenant was reportedly transported to a local hospital for evaluation.

The entire building had to be vacated, according to the department, due to electric damage.
