LAS VEGAS -- A toddler was taken to the hospital to be checked for smoke inhalation after a fire started in a small downtown studio apartment.

The fire was confined to one unit. 

Fire dispatchers received several calls at 4:05 p.m. Monday that smoke was coming from an upstairs apartment at the Downtowner Motel/Apartments at 129 N. Eighth Street (at Ogden Ave.)

When firefighters arrived, smoke was showing from a room on the second floor of a two-story motel.

Firefighters went into the unit and found a fire on the stove of a small kitchenette. They had the fire out in a minute.
