Fire causes damage to apartment unit in Rocklin

A fire at an upstairs apartment complex in Rocklin caused heavy damage to one apartment unit early Tuesday morning .

The Rocklin Fire Department was dispatched a 5:22 a.m. and arrived to find a heavy fire on the upper balcony of the apartment complex, a Rocklin Fire Department spokesman said. There were two occupants who were asleep in the apartment unit when the fire started. They were notified of the fire when their neighbor knocked on the door. The two occupants grabbed their dog and safely exited the unit, said the spokesman.

The fire department contained the fire so that neighboring units on the floor did not suffer fire damage. However, the apartment below sustained water damage, fire officials said.

No firefighters nor civilians were injuried. The fire department said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
