Stephens said fire crews made a thorough check for fire extension throughout the involved apartment. Stephens said the fire was contained to the original unit and the TFD’s quick response time was a contributing factor to keeping the fire contained to the single unit and from spreading to other units.

The Troy Police Department and Troy Utilities assisted in the incident.

The fire remains under investigation by the Troy Fire Marshall’s Office.
