SOUTH AMHERST — No one was injured in a fire off Telegraph Road on Tuesday evening.
South Amherst Fire responded to a two-story apartment fire behind the Trading Post shopping plaza about 7:15 p.m.
The building, half residential and half business, had smoke pouring from its back corner, but everyone got out of the building safely, Chief Al Schmitz said. The resident’s dog was in the back of Schmitz’s command vehicle while crews worked to get the fire under control.
A resident caught his mattress on fire, Schmitz said, which spread to the rest of the apartment.
“At this point I don’t know what caused it or why he caught his mattress on fire,” he said.
The fire is under investigation.
