Cigarette to blame for apartment fire

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ A fire at a west Lawton apartment complex sparked Monday night after a lit cigarette was tossed into the breezeway.

Firefighters were called to the Crosby Park apartments just before 7 p.m.

Residents were never in any real danger since firefighters arrived before the fire got out of control.

The fire started after a cigarette was tossed and was allowed to smolder after falling between the wall of a unit and a slab of concrete.

A damage estimate report has not been completed.
