Firefighters found a fire in the kitchen area of a first floor apartment and the fire was out in about 15 minutes.

One woman was seriously injured and transported to the hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and possibly burns.

A man helped the woman out of her apartment and suffered from slight smoke inhalation and was treated on the scene.
