No one was hurt after a fire in a 14-storey apartment building Friday.

Firefighters were called to the scene just after noon to 3000 Pembina Highway. When they got there, a second alarm was called, which generally happens when dealing with a high-rise fire.

Crews found smoke pouring from the building, and they launched an offensive attack. The fire was under control half an hour later.
