CENTRAL WEST END (KTVI) – There was a rude awakening for some folks in the Central West End Monday morning.  A food fire forced fire officials to evacuate an apartment building on North Taylor at McPherson.

The fire began in a first floor unit while a woman was cooking.  Although she managed to knock down the flames, smoke spread throughout the building.

Other residents were evacuated for a short time while firefighters brought in fans to blow out the smoke.
