Two people were injured and taken to a Columbia hospital after an early Sunday morning fire at the Richland Terrace apartments on 1212 Metze Road.
Columbia interim fire chief Aubrey Jenkins said neither smoke-inhalation injury was life-threatening. No firefighters were hurt.
About $70,000 worth of damage was done to six apartments, but the cause of the blaze is unknown, Jenkins said.
We know where the fire started in a bathroom vent but we dont know why it started, said Jenkins.
The local American Red Cross is taking care of 13 people displaced by the fire.
