An apartment fire on Martha Court on Tuesday has temporarily displaced four families.
The fire, at Martha Court Apartments, was reported just before 3 p.m., and firefighters found heavy smoke coming from the second floor of the three-story building, Lexington fire Battalion Chief Randy Gilliam said.
Gilliam said the fire was confined to the apartment where it started, but neighboring apartments in the 12-unit building were damaged by smoke and water.
Gilliam said the woman who lives in the apartment was visiting a neighbor when the fire started; she smelled smoke, went back to her apartment and found the fire. The woman was not identified.
She probably lost all her belongings, Gilliam said.
No one was injured in the fire, and Gilliam said Tuesday night that he did not know the cause.
