A 60-year-old Davenport man was taken away in an ambulance Monday after his kitchen stove caught fire.
The man had left food cooking on the stove in his apartment at 321 W. Columbia Ave., according to landlord Jim Smith.
The fire at the six-plex was reported about 5:30 p.m. Losses are estimated at $110,000.
Davenport Fire Capt. Karl Leslein said the fire spread throughout the kitchen. Firefighters contained it to the one apartment.
The building has five apartments, and the other residents were evacuated safely. Though the man's injuries are unknown, Smith said he's doing OK.
Smoke had spread throughout the other four apartments. Leslein said whether the other apartments would be habitable Monday night was yet to be determined.
