The Roseville Fire Department is sharing information about an apartment fire that broke out in the 1000 block of Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard Thursday morning.

According to Roseville Public Information Officer Brian Jacobson, the flames were first sighted around 10:38 a.m., prompting a 911 call to emergency dispatchers. Roseville fire crews arrived to confront dark smoke billowing from a first floor unit of the structure.

After checking that no residents were trapped inside, firefighters quickly knocked down the blaze and stopped it from spreading to other units.  

In total, three fire engines and two ladder trucks took part in the effort. The American Medical Response and Rocklin Fire also responded to offer assistance.

Jacobson added units from CAL FIRE and South Placer Fire District provided station coverage during the incident.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation and damages are estimated at $166,000.

Jacobson said a family cat was killed in the fire.
