PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A quick response likely saved an apartment building from burning to the ground early Tuesday morning.

A man woke up and smelled smoke in his apartment near Ninth Avenue and Grande just before 2 a.m.

He called 911. Firefighters got to work and were able to keep the flames from spreading.

The Phoenix Fire Department said the damage was contained to one unit.

Eleven people were evacuated. No one was hurt.

There's no word yet on the cause.
