RENO, NV - Reno firefighters made quick work of putting out a kitchen fire that led to the evacuation of an apartment complex Friday afternoon.

Investigators say flames were reported shortly after 3PM at the complex at 2080 Highview Court, near Wedekind. No people were in the apartment at the time, but neighbors were led outside while firefighters made sure all the other units were okay.

A pet rabbit inside the apartment was rescued from the smoke and given oxygen.

Investigators say unattended food being cooked caused the fire.
