WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Wichita Falls Fire Department was sent to 4700 Taft for an apartment fire around midnight on Saturday.

The fire had been knocked down by the neighbor from the apartment next door. When he noticed the smoke coming from the apartment, he reportedly broke a window and used a fire extinguisher to help reduce the flames before the WFFD arrived.

The apartment was vacant at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

WFFD officials said the fire was caused by a lighted appliance plugged into a bedside table and caused about $8,000 in damages.
