No one was injured but an apartment in Jefferson Heights was damaged as the result of a fire Tuesday afternoon.

Lt. Harold Clark, spokesman for Pine Bluff Fire and Emergency Services Department, said firefighters responded to the fire at about 3 p.m. and when they arrived, smoke was coming from Apartment 48.

“The maintenance supervisor got in first and tried to put it out and couldn’t,” Clark said. “When firefighters got there, they were able to extinguish the blaze pretty quickly and damage was confined primarily to that apartment.”

Clark said an adjacent apartment did receive some minor smoke damage from the fire, which was believed to have started in the kitchen area.

“The assistant fire marshal was called out there to investigate and he hasn’t said yet what he found,” Clark said.

Clark said the apartment tenants were not home at the time of the fire and arrived later and will be displaced as a result of damage to the apartment.
