One person has been injured in a fire at School House Road apartment complex in Columbia, said Interim Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins.

The fire started about 5:12 p.m. while an apartment resident was cooking, Jenkins said. The injured person has not been named but emergency responders took the victim to a local hospital for treatment of burn wounds, he said.

Firefighters estimate the fire has caused about $50,000 damages to the two-story apartment building on the 2800 block of School House Road. Four families will be displaced, Jenkins said.

The blaze is under control but firefighters remain on the scene.
