Leger says the occupants left an electric curling iron on in the bathroom. The hot curling iron started the fire, which gutted the entire second floor bathroom. It also left extensive smoke damage to the rest of their apartment.

The two occupants were left homeless. The owner of the apartment complex is helping them find another place to stay. There were no injuries.
