There were no reported injuries and the fire appears to have originated in the third floor apartment of 930 Bay Forest Court in the Bay Forest Apartments.

According to residents, the buildings are supposed to be non-smoking except for residents who were “grandfathered” in to allow for smoking. The building is fully sprinklered and equipped with smoke detectors.

A smoking mattress was removed from the apartment and was smoldering on the walkway beneath the fire scene.
