A fire at a West Knoxville apartment complex had neighbors springing into action Tuesday evening.

Witnesses saw smoke pouring from one of the units at Cedar Springs Apartments at Gleason Drive and Gallaher View Road.

Jonathan Wright, who was walking outside with his girlfriend, said he ran into the burning apartment to make sure no one was inside. He said neighbors then handed off fire extinguishers for him to fight the flames.

"I went into the house at the front door and sprayed as far as I could to reach the stove; there was a lot of smoke. It was tough," said Wright.

There's no word on the cause of the fire.
