A cigarette likely ignited a fire Sunday morning that damaged an apartment in Biloxi, a fire official said.
Battalion Chief Anthony Trosclair said it appeared a woman was smoking while using oxygen, which ignited at the McDonnell Avenue Apartments about 7 a.m.
He said the fire damage inside the apartment was confined to a couch.
The woman suffered burns on her legs and was taken to an area hospital by American Medical Response.
