DECATUR — Crews quickly put out a fire in a third-floor unit at a Decatur apartment complex, the Decatur Fire Department said Thursday. 

The department said in a statement that crews arrived shortly before 7 p.m. after the fire at 1340 E. Wellington Way was reported by a neighbor. Firefighters first on scene forced the door and extinguished the fire. 

A search of the unit revealed no people were inside, the department said. Crews overhauled the apartment to ensure the fire was completely out. 

The apartment had moderate smoke and fire damage, the department said. The incident remains under investigation, and a cause was not yet known.
