PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Fire Department say one person suffered smoke inhalation injuries from an apartment fire that displaced six residents early Saturday morning.

No firefighters were injured while clearing apartments adjacent to the second-floor unit where the fire started and keeping it from spreading, the department said.

The injured person was treated at the scene but declined ambulance transport to a hospital, the department said.

The American Red Cross says it is assisting the displaced residents.

Cause of the fire is under investigation.
