Pensacola, Florida (PNJ) -- A woman suffered severe burns Saturday night in an apartment tower fire in West Pensacola, according to a release from Pensacola Fire Marshal David Allen.

The Pensacola Fire Department responded Saturday night to an apartment fire at Westminster Village Tower II in the 1800 block of West Moreno Street.

Three engines, a ladder and a rescue truck arrived on the scene about 6:39 p.m., and firefighters rescued a woman trapped in the fifth-floor apartment, the release stated. She was then transported to the hospital by EMS for treatment.

Several others were evacuated from the building.

The fire likely was caused by smoking in bed. The state fire marshal and the Pensacola Fire Marshal's Office are investigating the fire. Damage was limited to one apartment.
