Smoke and flames were coming out of the back of the two-story, multiple family building when firefighters arrived. The fire was extinguished within 15 minutes of firefighters' arrival.

There was no one home at the time of the fire and no reported injuries.

Officials determined that the fire started inside of a storage room because of improperly discarded ashes in a trash can.
