One apartment unit was destroyed and two others were damaged by smoke after a fire erupted Wednesday at Cotton Apartments on Cascade Avenue.The three apartments that were damaged were all in the same building and shared the same roof. The fire could have been caused by a generator placed in a window in an effort to provide electricity to the residence. “We haven’t really pinpointed what caused the fire yet,” said McMinnville Fire Chief Kendall Mayfield.
