HICKMAN, Ky. - The Hickman Fire Chief says apartment units damaged by a weekend fire in Hickman can be repaired.

Fire Chief Tommy Ramsey says the fire started around 9 p.m. Saturday at the Hickman Manor apartment complex.

The state fire marshal plans to look into the official cause this week, but Ramsey says a resident accidentally started a grease fire that quickly spread into the attic.

No one was injured in the fire, but four units were heavily damaged or destroyed.
