Thunder Bay Fire Rescue were called to an apartment fire on Sherrington Dr.

Early Friday morning crews arrived to the scene of the 48-unit apartment building to see black smoke coming from a fourth floor apartment. A second alarm was initiated bringing a total of 6 Pumpers an Aerial Ladder, and a command unit to the scene.

Firefighters made their way to the fourth floor to locate the apartment of origin where they encountered light smoke in the hall.

Upon entry into the involved apartment, the crew encountered heavy thick black smoke.  With the aid of a thermal imaging camera the crew was able to quickly identify the location of the fire, and rapidly bring the fire under control.

The apartment sustained heavy smoke damage but structural damage was kept to a minimum.

The tenant of the apartment was brought to TBRH for observations due to smoke inhalation.

The fire is under investigation at this time.
