The flames began to  consume the contents of the adjoining dining room and living room when firefighters entered.Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the flames, but heavy smoke had charged a second-floor apartment above the burning apartment. Fire-retardant drywall kept the fire from extending. The fire was contained to the apartment of origin.
