Firefighters contained an apartment fire to one unit around 10 p.m. Sunday at the Pioneer Hill Apartments. The fire was caused by a cigarette left on the couch, according to Pullman Fire Prevention Officer Rich Dragoo.
Pullman and Whitman County crews saw smoke pouring from the building upon arrival.
Captain Eric Reiber said the manager's apartment, located on the ground floor of the 4-story building, was the only unit that burned. Nobody was home at the time of the fire.
