VENTURA, Calif. - Firefighters responded to a call about a fire on Tuesday in a single-story multi-unit apartment building in Ventura.

The firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from the front window of a rear unit at the 400-500 Block of Arcade Drive.

Firefighters made sure no one was in the apartment before aggressively attacking the fire.

The Ventura City Fire Department said the fire was extinguished within 15 minutes of the initial 911 call.

After a quick search, the source of the fire was found to be in the kitchen of the unit.

The estimated damages to the structure were approximately $10,000 and personal losses were estimated to be at $5,000.

The specific cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the Ventura City Fire Department would like to remind everyone to install working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in their homes as well as create a fire evacuation plan.
