Officials are blaming a stove top for the fire that destroyed an apartment Monday evening.

According to Captain Stan May, a resident at the Eton Square apartments accidentally left a burner on after reportedly using it to light a cigarette.

Fire officials went on to say the fire started in a kitchen around 10:45 p.m. near 61st and Memorial.

The complex provided another apartment for the two residents and Red Cross is assisting them with other needs.
