At least four people were displaced from a Lynchburg apartment building Tuesday after a fire erupted in the structure, officials said.
Firefighters responded to 1129 Rivermont Ave at 12:13 p.m. for a report of a structure fire, according to Lynchburg Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Reeves.
Reeves said the fire was largely contained to a first floor room, though much of the home sustained smoke damage. The full extent of the damage is unknown.
One person was inside the building at the time of the fire, Reeves said. The man sustained a minor injury and was treated at the scene by medics.
The building, a two-story wood framed house, was built in 1897, according to property records.
