ST. PETERSBURG — Food forgotten on a stove caused a unit at the Twin Brooks Apartments, 3450 24th Ave. S, to fill with smoke Monday evening, St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue Lt. Joel Granata said.
A 57-year-old man was taken to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg for treatment of smoke inhalation and a second man was treated at the scene, Granata said.
"We get a lot of those," Granata said of the incident. "It's a regular thing. People get distracted easily. They were lucky they noticed the smoke."
