One person was hospitalized after a Wednesday night apartment fire on the southeast side of Evansville, Indiana.
The Evansville Fire Department says crews responded to the Omega Apartments complex on S. Green River Road just before midnight on Wednesday, after a resident in one of the units called 911 after hearing a smoke detector.
EFD says that while crews were on their way, other residents at the complex went to investigate and saw smoke seeping from the door and window of one of the units. One neighbor even opened the door and used a fire extinguisher to put out some of the flames, according to the fire department.
When firefighters arrived around 11:50 p.m., the fire was in the bedroom of the unit, as was the man who was living there.
EFD says the 37-year-old man was rescued from the burning apartment by firefighters and treated until AMR arrived, at which point he was taken to Ascension Hospital in Evansville before eventually being transferred to Lousiville.
According to the fire department, the fire was extinguished in about 10 minutes and the apartment unit where the fire started was the only unit affected.
The Evansville Police Department responded to the scene to file an Arson report. EFD says the fire is currently being looked at as a possible suicide attempt.
No further information has been released but EFD says updates will be provided when they're available.
