A 70-year-old man was hospitalized with smoke inhalation and first-degree burns on part of his body from a fire in his apartment early Sunday.

Ann Arbor firefighters responded to the fire in a kitchen in a seventh-floor apartment at Lurie Terrace, 600 W. Huron St., at 12:51 a.m.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation Monday morning, said Ann Arbor Fire Battalion Chief Robert Vogel.

Some residents of other apartments on the eighth, seventh and sixth floors of the complex for senior citizens were temporarily evacuated to a sixth-floor lounge and the building's lobby.

The apartment where the fire began had heavy smoke and water damage, Vogel said.

Two other apartments suffered damage from water, and the hallway on the seventh floor had some damage from water and smoke.

All six of the city's fire trucks were called to the scene. Off-duty firefighters were summoned to provide coverage for the rest of the city, along with mutual aid from the Ypsilanti City Fire Department, according to a press release from the Ann Arbor Fire Department.
