RIFD responded to the 10th floor of Two Rivers Point in the afternoon on Wednesday, July 8 to fight a sudden, accidental fire.

Crews evacuated several residents of the floor and then contained the blaze to a single apartment, before successfully putting it out.

One resident was displaced as a result of the fire, but the rest were moved back in after the lingering smoke was cleared.

The cause of the fire was determined to be an accident involving a stove.
