Several residents were displaced by a two-alarm fire at a Lincoln apartment complex Tuesday night.

A carelessly discarded cigarette started the blaze near 16th and Garfield streets. It appears the cigarette first ignited a blanket on the balcony, then spread. Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from the third floor of the building. It took about a half-hour to bring the fire under control.

One apartment sustained fire and smoke damage while surrounding apartments had water damage. Total damage estimates could range anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000.
