Neighbors told News 12 that they could smell the marijuana, but never thought that the person in the apartment was growing the plant.

Police have not released the name of the person who lives in the apartment.

The cause is still under investigation, but some say that the lights and fans allegedly used to grow the marijuana plants were left on, possibly leading to the fire.
