Unattended cooking is being blamed for sparking an early morning apartment fire in Fayetteville, said officials.
Fire crews were called out to the Murchison Townhouse Apartments on Rosemary Drive.
Investigators said someone in one of the apartments fell asleep while cooking. The smoke detector in the apartment alerted the family and all five members were able to get out safely.
The fire damaged the one unit and two additional units received some smoke damage.
No injuries were reported. The Red Cross is working with officials to meet the needs of those affected by Thursday morning's fire.
