KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

Two different fires break out in one day at a Kingsport apartment complex.

News 5 caught up with crews at 1401 Stratford Road shortly after 2:00 Tuesday afternoon where firefighters put out a fire in the top floor of one of the apartment units.

Firefighters told us crews were at the same location early Tuesday morning in response to a fire in two other units.

Officials told us no one was hurt in either fire, but we spoke with the landlord who told us the damage will cost her several thousand dollars.

"I'll have to fix it, and I'm personally scared at home now, you know it scares you," said Jackie Stoneham, the landlord of the apartment complex.

The cause of both fires is still under investigation.
