UFA Battalion Chief Brian Anderton said the fire was contained to the upstairs unit and was believed to have begun in a bedroom.

The cause of the blaze, which resulted in an estimated $25,000 damage, was under investigation, but Anderton said it did not appear to be suspicious.

Anderton said the Red Cross was assisting a family of five living in the upstairs unit with food, shelter and clothing needs.
