Multiple fire crews were called to the scene of an apartment fire on Duluth's Central Hillside Thursday night.

Authorities say the blaze broke out on the 600 block of 6th St E.

Fire officials believe it started, in the kitchen on a stovetop.

"We did have a fully involved kitchen fire. Guys were able to get in right away. Didn't have any damage to the lower unit, but the second unit is definitely not tenable," Assistant Fire Chief Erik Simonson.

Simonson says that four occupants were living in that unit, and were all able to escape without injury.

An investigation into an official cause is still ongoing.
