No one was injured following a report of smoke on Tuesday at Mitchell's Edgerton Apartments.

The Mitchell Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from one of the ground floor apartments at approximately 9 a.m. to the complex located at 1111 S. Edgerton St.

According to the building's property manager, a tenant had left the oven on self-cleaning mode while using the dishwasher and leaving the back stove burner on, creating smoke in the apartment.

Shortly after their arrival, Mitchell firefighters cleared the smoke at the scene.
