No one was injured in an apartment fire at City Limits Apartments Monday night.

Firefighters and Mower County Sheriff deputies were called to the apartments just north of Austin after 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to Chief Deputy Mark May.

May said firefighters put out a kitchen fire, which turned out to be burning food on the stove. There was no damage estimate as of Tuesday morning, but May said firefighters had to ventilate the apartment.
