The Ann Arbor Fire Department was dispatched at 6:58 p.m. Wednesday to the sixth-floor Lurie Terrace Senior Apartments at 600 W. Huron Street.
Batallion Chief on duty Kevin Cook said the fire department arrived in 2 1/2 minutes and put out a kitchen fire in a few minutes.
Cook said there was one minor injury due to smoke inhalation, but they were able to evacuate the smoke through the elevator shaft in about 20 minutes.
"Older folks live at this facility, so it could have been a lot more dangerous situation than it was," Cook said.
As of now, the damage done to the apartment is unclear.
