Close to 30 firefighters responded to a fire at Belwood Apartments.
Officials say the apartment was occupied when the fire started.
Everyone got out safely, but not before using a portable extinguisher, and isolating the fire to a bathroom.
Police say their actions did slow down the fire.
The cause was a smoldering cigarette thrown in a trash can.
