A roof fire at a Market Street housing complex left three apartments with water damage on Friday afternoon, said deputy fire chief Frank Calamita.

Fire at the four-story building on 19 Market Street began at the roof’s patio, picnic area at 3:37 p.m.

Calamita said some picnic tables and content at the roof burned. He said no one was displaced as a result of the fire which was quickly doused by firefighters.

There’s a licensed electrician working at the apartment complex, said the deputy chief. Firefighters contained the fire which was limited to the roof within an hour.

Fire command setup at Market Street was terminated two hours after the fire came in. No firefighters were injured at the scene, said Calamita.
