A senior home in Chico was briefly evacuated Friday morning following an apartment fire.

One apartment caught fire at The Courtyard at Little Chico Creek around 8:30 a.m. The sole resident in the apartment suffered burns. She was speaking with first responders and seemed alert when our camera crew arrived on scene. She was then transported to Enloe Medical Center to treat the unknown extent of her injuries.

The fire sprinklers inside the apartment contained the blaze just moments after the fire started. Within an hour, residents were allowed back inside the building.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
