BIRMINGHAM - AL —
A Center Point apartment has been damaged after a fire, Sunday afternoon.

According to fire fighters on scene, one apartment has been damaged. The woman who lived in the unit was able to get out, unharmed.
Surrounding apartments did have some smoke and water damage.
"People do cook and use all kind of different types of decorations, including candles," Fire Fighter, Matt Angelo, said. "So, we just stress to them if you're going to use them, make sure they use them properly. Make sure you know how they function. And, if you use candles and if you're cooking, don't leave it unattended because that's a huge case of fires right now."
Fire fighters are still keeping an eye on hotspots and are trying to determine the cause.
