Fire broke out just before 6:00 p.m. Wednesday at the Kardon-Atlantic Apartments at 1801 North 10th Street.
On arrival, firefighters saw smoke coming from the multi-story building.
Although some Temple University students live in the high-rise, the building is privately owned and off campus.
The incident was placed under control within an hour.
One person was taken to Temple University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
