The Duluth Fire Department is investigating how a small fire broke out in a storage building below London Road on Monday evening. 

Assistant Chief Clint Reff says crews arrived on the scene just after 6:15 p.m. and were able to knock down the blaze within 10 minutes. 

The building, located at 2115 South St., is behind the now-vacant and for sale Burger King location on London Road between 21st and 22nd Avenues East. 

It appeared to store building materials, which Reff believes ignited the fire. The exact cause is still under investigation.

Initial damage is estimated at $5,500. No one was injured.
