GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man was hospitalized after suffering from smoke inhalation, when firefighters say he fell asleep while cooking food early Wednesday morning.

Fire crews responded for a possible fire on the eighth floor to the Ransom Tower apartment building at 50 Ransom Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids. Smoke had filled one of the apartment units.

A tenant had fallen asleep while cooking food. He was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.

As a fire crew worked to ventilate the unit, additional alarms sounded in the floors above, triggered by rising smoke.
