COLUMBIA - At 4:55 a.m. Columbia Fire Fighters responded to 230 Apple Tree Court, Apartment 1, for a reported residential  structure fire. When crews arrived, they reported fire in the back bedroom of the apartment. The fire was extinguished quickly and confined to the bedroom. Crews knocked down the fire in under 10 minutes. Assistant Fire Marshal Brian Davison investigated the fire and said the cause of the fire was under investigation. The owner of the  apartment building is Don Freese of Columbia. Smoke detectors did go off to alert tenants to the fire. All tenants had evacuated from the  building and there were no injuries as a result of the fire. AFM Davison estimaged damage at $10,000.00. The Columbia Fire Department wants to remind residents that working  smoke alarms do save lives. Test smoke alarms at least once a month by pressing the test button. Replace smoke alarm batteries at  least once a year. Replace smoke alarms every 10 years. To ensure adequate protection, place smoke alarms in every sleeping room, and in a common area on every floor.  Columbia Fire Department can schedule an appointment to have free smoke alarms installed, for people who cannot afford one. Residents who need assistance in checking their smoke alarms, can also contact the Columbia Fire Department.
