A mattress that caught fire and smoked up part of an apartment building kept Grand Island Firefighters and other 1st responders busy Wednesday near the 200 block of Piper Street.
Emergency Division Chief Tim Heimer says when firefighters arrived; smoke was coming from the 2nd floor window.
Heimer says, "Upon our arrival we had light smoke coming from the 2nd floor of the apartment. Crews made entry and found a mattress on fire. They extinguished it and removed the mattress."
Grand Island Police and Red Cross officials were also on the scene to help with the situation. No one was hurt in the blaze and the fire is under investigation. Damage estimates are unknown at this time.
