BURLEY — The Burley Fire Department responded to fire early Tuesday at a single story building that housed several small studio apartments.

No one was injured.

Firefighters were called at 3.52 a.m. and found heavy smoke coming from the building, 734 Elba Ave., the department said on Facebook.

The fire was difficult to access due to the design of the apartments.

The fire was extinguished and contained within an hour of firefighters arriving.
