An Eagle Heights resident was attempting to cook a taco shell in their toaster oven when he started to smell smoke and found flames inside the oven.
A full structure fire response was summoned to the building, and Engine Company 9 was first on scene. The 911 caller met with firefighters outside and said the fire was out.
Engine 9 was taken to the second-story unit, where they found the toaster oven unplugged and some smoke stains on the cabinet above it. There was no flame damage or fire extension.
