Video from the scene showed firefighters hosing down the building. The damage was apparent from the outside, but the extent was not clear.
The man who lives in the unit told Liverman that the fire started while his 26-year-old son was cooking. The man said his son suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to the hospital, but he is expected to recover.
The effects of smoke inhalation range from mild to deadly. Symptoms, according to WebMD, include coughing, shortness of breath, hoarseness, headache, changes in skin color and changes in mental status such as confusion, fainting, seizures and coma.
