(Cleveland)- Several fire units were dispatched to an apartment fire at 1000 Campbell Street in Cleveland Friday  night.  Cleveland Fire Chief Ricky Pruitt said they were dispatched at 7:27 pm, after residents of a couple of others apartment units called 9-1–1. 

Cleveland Police arrived on scene first and reported heavy smoke coming from the apartment.

Chief Pruitt said, “ Cleveland fire units made a quick interior attack and knocked the fire down.”  

According to Pruitt, Cleveland fire investigator Charlie Bryson  determined the cause of the fire was a discarded cigarette on the sofa.
