Couch Catches Fire in Battery Lane Apartment

No one was home at the time of the blaze, rescuers said.

A couch caught on fire in an apartment on Battery Lane Wednesday morning, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.

Fire and Rescue responded to the three-story apartment complex at 4911 Battery Lane at 8:41 a.m., according to Beth Anne Nesselt, a rescue service spokeswoman.

When units arrived, a substantial amount of smoke was visible from the roof of the building, Nesselt said. Rescuers determined the cause was a couch on fire in a third-story aparment.

No one was home at the time of the blaze, Nesselt said.

Fire investigators are working to determine what caused the blaze, Nesselt said. The apartment was being ventilated and it didn't appear that anyone would be displaced.

If no one was at home how did the couch on fire? Not by itself. Hmmm.
