Just before 7:15pm, Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews were called to an apartment building near N Cotner & Garland for a reported structure fire.
Upon arrival, the structure was confirmed to be on fire, and a second alarm was requested. Flames were contained initially, but reignited shortly after. By that point, firefighters attacked the fire from the exterior.
Crews are still on scene working to extinguish hotspots. One person has been treated and released on scene for smoke inhalation.
