A man smoking near his oxygen machine apparently caused a fire Sunday at a Canton apartment that sent the resident to the hospital, according to the Canton Observer.
The man sustained non-life-threatening injuries after the fire at Lincolnshire Apartments, 44000 block of Trails Court in Canton, according to Canton public safety officials.
Canton dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call at about 4:45 p.m. Sunday reporting an apartment fire with occupants possibly still inside the building, officials reported. Canton fire crews arrived to find heavy smoke and light fire from a two-story apartment building.
Fire crews were able to determine all occupants were out of the building before entering to extinguish the blaze, officials indicated.
