Firefighters located the fire in a rear apartment in the three-story building. After forcing open the door, they found the occupant asleep in a rear bedroom. The fire was confined to the apartment’s kitchen but there was smoke damage throughout the unit.

Two smoke detectors in the apartment had been removed from the ceilings, the department said.
