LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Fire crews responded to an apartment fire on Roy Wilkins Avenue early Thursday.

It started in a second floor apartment shortly before 4:30 a.m. near the intersection with West Broadway.

Two people inside the apartment were able to get out safely. And a handicapped person in a first floor apartment also was able to get out.

Damage was contained to just the one apartment. Fire officials are looking at whether the fire started in a bathroom. They are also not certain whether the smoke detector was working because it was badly damaged by the fire.

One firefighter suffered a minor leg injury and was taken to the hospital.  Crews had the fire out in less than 10 minutes.
