A morning apartment fire in the NOMA neighborhood drew an all-hands-on-deck response from the Santa Monica Fire Department on Tuesday.

All 35 SMFD firefighters on duty were called to the 100 block of Palisades/Alta for a fire in a two story apartment building. Firefighters were able to confine the flames to a single unit and part of the building’s attic.

No one was home in the impacted unit and SMFD said there were no reports of injuries. Fire investigators and building inspectors are currently on site to determine possible causes and the scope of the damage.
