LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Little Rock firefighter is reported injured in an apartment fire this morning.

It broke out around 5:00 at the Forest Place complex on University Avenue.

That's the same place where a fire less than a month ago destroyed dozens of apartments and left 130 people without homes.

Fire officials say it appears today's blaze started in an elevator shaft. Everyone in the building was safely evacuated.

Reports from the scene indicate that there may have been some damage to apartments near the shaft.

There's no word on the condition of the firefighter who was injured this morning.
