It happened around 6:20 p.m. at Heritage House Apartments at the corner of Kemp and Seymour Highway.
Battalion Chief Mike Davis says the call came in as a stove fire but when he arrived he saw flames coming from the apartment so he called out additional help.
Davis says everyone in the building was evacuated and no one was injured.
Davis says the fire was under control in about 20 minutes.
