TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - One man was taken to the hospital after a fire at the Arbor Landings Apartments on Thursday morning in South Toledo.

Crews were called to the apartments around 4:00 a.m. after the fire broke out in the first floor of a building in the 1100 block of Brookview Drive.

The building was evacuated due to heavy smoke.
