HILLSBORO, Ore. -- A fire early Thursday at a Hillsboro apartment building was extinguished by automatic sprinklers.

Hillsboro Fire and Rescue says the person living in the second-floor apartment where the fire started was treated at a hospital for smoke inhalation.

Investigators determined the fire was caused by an electric wheelchair.

The fire damage was contained to one unit of the Rolling Green Apartments. Six other apartments have water damage.
