WATERVLIET, N.Y. – A morning fire at a Watervliet apartment complex stays contained in the bedroom.

Chief Skinner of the Watervliet Fire Department tells NEWS10 that a call came in Friday morning at 5:59am for a bedroom fire at the Highland Club Apartments.

Building four, apartment twelve was the affected basement apartment that caused all residents living in the building to evacuate after it was filled up with smoke.

Troy and Green Island Fire Departments assisted Watervliet Arsenal in putting out the fire, which was contained to the bedroom in the apartment.

Two people occupying the residence at the time of the fire were able to escape with no injuries.

Apartment four needs repairs but all other tenants were able to return to their apartments in Building 12 once the fire was contained.

The cause of the fire is still unknown at this point but is believed to be accidental.
