CHAMPAIGN – No one was hurt in an apartment fire in Champaign Saturday afternoon.

A release from the fire department said firefighters were called to the Providence Circle apartment complex just north of Bradley Avenue about 4:45 p.m. Saturday.

They found fire in a bedroom at the two-story building at 1210 Providence Circle, most of which had been put out by an automatic sprinkler system.

Firefighters remained there for about an hour to put out hot spots, using just an extinguisher.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
