No injuries were reported Wednesday in a fire that caused about $30,000 damage to an apartment complex on the 0-100 block of South Naper Boulevard, authorities said.

Authorities said the fire was confined to a single unit of the complex, but smoke spread to the second and third floors.

Firefighters said the fire was accidental and apparently related to cooking. The apartment unit is uninhabitable until repairs are made, officials said.

Firefighters received a 911 call at 12:47 p.m. and arrived five minutes later to find smoke on the building's second floor. The fire was brought under control in about 10 minutes, they said.

Naperville firefighters were assisted at the scene by two Lisle-Woodridge Fire Department units, Naperville police and the city's transportation and engineering department. The Warrenville and Plainfield fire departments provided station coverage in Naperville.
