TROY — A small fire at Garden Manor Apartments was quickly handled by Troy firefighters on Tuesday.

Firefighters were called to the complex at 505 Crescent Drive just after noon. They, and Troy police, knocked on doors to alert residents and clear the building as they searched for the source of the smoke.

The source was determined to be in apartment C1 where an item that may have been too close to a heat source was located and extinguished.

A small dog was found, alone, in the apartment. It was removed from the building by firefighters who were attempting to locate the resident of the apartment.

Damage to the apartment was minimal and there were no injuries. Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour.
