Alpine Ridge Apartments were evacuated early Tuesday morning, after one of the tenants had light smoke coming into his apartment from the apartment below and his fire detector was going off, a fire department release said.
According to the release, the evacuation was because of a fire in one of the apartments on the lower level of the 30-unit complex, located at 1112 Kings Springs Road.
Four engine companies, two truck companies, a shift commander and Washington County EMS responded to the fire. They were able to contain the fire within 30 minutes and none of the tenants or firefighters were injured, the release said.
The occupant of the apartment that caught on fire has been displaced.
The JCFD said the cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Johnson City Fire Marshal’s Division.
