With Americans spending more time at home than ever before, it's even more important to help ensure you are prepared in the event of a home fire.

A laundry room fire in a Lincoln apartment building displaced one resident on Tuesday evening, according to Lincoln Fire & Rescue. 

Capt. Nancy Crist said responders encountered heavy smoke and found the fire on the garden level of the three-story building near 19th and H streets at about 5:45 p.m. 

No one was injured in the incident, but a resident in the unit directly above the laundry room was displaced, Crist said. 

Lincoln Fire Inspector Jason Relford said he hasn't yet determined what caused the fire.
