Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish a fire at a downtown fire early Thursday morning.

Crews responded to a two-story building at 417 Main just before 5 a.m. The building had a business on the first floor and an apartment on the second floor. Firefighters entering the residence found no one home, but discovered a fire in a bedroom wall. Crews managed to knock down the fire in less than six minutes. 

The two adults and three kids who live in the apartment were helped by the Red Cross. Damage to the building was minimal, but the apartment sustained some smoke damage. The bedroom had heavy smoke damage and some fire damage. 

The cause of the fire is unknown, but not considered suspicious.
