FAIRFIELD — A kitchen fire destroyed a Peachtree Road apartment Friday afternoon.
Neighbors saw smoke billowing from the second-story apartment around 4:30 p.m. and called 911. Firefighters arrived at the Peachtree Apartments complex within minutes, searched the smoke-filled apartment to ensure no residents were there and quickly doused the fire.
Firefighters kept flames and smoke from spreading to adjacent apartments.
While flames were contained to the kitchen, heat and dense smoke blackened all the interior walls, ceilings and many of the belongings.
