Quick action by firefighters in Monett made short work of a blaze in the upstairs apartment at 401 Fifth Street right before noon yesterday. A lit cigarette had apparently fallen through a window sill and into the wall at the window above during cleaning. Firemen made sure the blaze had not spread, after the initial attack with a fire extinguisher. The house, owned by Junior Horton, has been converted to three rented apartments.
