Fire officials in the Village of Johnson City say they are continuing to investigate the cause of an apartment building fire around mid-day August 9.

Crews were called to the building on Harry L. Drive with a report of possible entrapment at 11:53 a.m. and found an active fire in apartment #1.

That blaze was put out in less than 20 minutes and firefighters began working in the high heat and zero visibility to try to find possible victims.  A dog and cat were rescued from the three-story, six family apartment house.  No human injuries were reported.

Fire officials say smoke detectors alerting residents and fast action from firefighters kept the damage confined to apartment #1 and residents were expected to return home soon.

The blaze is not believed to be suspicious in nature.
