At least two people were displaced when a kitchen fire got out of control at a Siegel Suites.

Las Vegas firefighters responded to the Siegel Suites Fremont II apartments at 1401 Fremont St., near 14th Street, at 7:58 p.m. Wednesday after reports of fire and smoke showing from a downstairs unit.
Firefighters arrived on scene and found heavy smoke showing from a downstairs unit of the two story building. Firefighters entered the small 500 square foot apartment and had the fire under control within a few minutes.
Occupants told firefighters they had a cooking fire that got out of control.  Damage was confined to the one unit. Damage was estimated at $5,000.
There were no reported injuries.

While two people were displaced from the unit that caught fire, fire officials say it may be as many as six due to power being out in part of the building.
