Five fire departments battled a blaze at the Victoria Plaza Apartments on Country Club Boulevard Thursday night.
According to witnesses, the flames severely damaged the apartment it started in, and the one directly below it.
Officials say a woman on the twelfth floor started the fire as she searched for something under her bed using a lighter, which caused the mattress to catch fire.
No injuries were reported.
