The improper disposal of smoking materials has been determined as the cause of a fire last week at a Champaign apartment.
Firefighters were called to the building at 1510 Grandview Drive last Thursday evening when a neighbor saw smoke coming out from underneath the door. Firefighters found smoke and a small fire in the apartment when they arrived.
They were able to rescue an occupant from the apartment. Fire officials said he was treated for minor smoke inhalation at a local hospital.
