The blaze broke out around 10:30 this morning at the Baltimore Garden apartments on Tam Drive west of the Stratosphere. Las Vegas Fire spokesman Tim Szymanski says it began as a stove top fire then spread to several other units. One woman suffered burns and was hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries. Several other residents were displaced. The unit where the fire began was completely gutted with total damages estimated at $40,000.
