No one was hurt when a cooking fire got out of control at an apartment on Hillcrest Drive in Fountain City.
According to Captain DJ Corcoran, the residents tried to use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire, but it ran out before the fire was extinguished.
Firefighters responded to the Amy Lee Apartments around 12:20 pm, and found heavy smoke coming out of an upstairs apartment. They were able to contain the damage to the kitchen area of that apartment.
The woman and her two sons who lived there will be able to move to an unoccupied apartment in the building, and the Red Cross will assist them with any needs.
No one was hurt.
The apartment building contained 14 different units.
