For the Reporter
An apartment fire in north Auburn on Monday night was determined to be accidental and caused $30,000 in damage, the Valley Regional Fire Authority said.
The VRFA responded to a report of smoke from a building in the 3400 block of I Street Northeast at 10:49 p.m..
Arriving Firefighters found a residential apartment charged with smoke and upgraded it to a commercial fire response. Firefighters entered and found a dryer fire that had extended to the rooms' contents. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and confirmed the structure was unoccupied.
There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians. One resident was displaced due to heat and smoke damage.
The VRFA reminds citizens to clean lint traps after every use and have dryer vents inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.
