Quick work by Collins Fire Department firefighters Saturday morning kept a fire at one apartment from spreading to others. A blaze broke out in the kitchen of one of the apartments at King Apartments on S. 5th Street shortly before nine a.m. 

Collins Fire Chief John Pope said firefighters, who were on a scheduled training exercise at Colonial Pipeline at the time, responded in just a few minutes and had the fire under control shortly thereafter. 

Damage was limited to the kitchen and an adjoining bathroom. 

Two occupants in the apartment escaped uninjured.
