Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish a fire at a building containing apartments and a storefront in Cary Monday morning, fire officials said.

The Cary Fire Protection District responded around 5:15 a.m. Monday to 48 Crystal Street in Cary for a call of a structure fire.

Firefighters arrived on the scene in three minutes to find smoke showing from a building.

Cary Fire Protection District Lt. Michael Douglass said firefighters found a deck in the rear of the building on fire.

The fire had extended into the walls near an upstairs apartment.

The building is two stories with the business, Live Fast Diecast Cars, on the first floor and three apartments on the second floor.

The fire was extinguished and brought under control within minutes, Douglass said.

One of the apartments suffered smoke damage but no damage was reported in the other apartments or the first-floor business. A damage estimate was not immediately available.

Crews remained on the scene overhauling to check for any fire extension.

Route 14, also known as Crystal Street, was closed and police officers detoured traffic for approximately an hour while fire crews were working.

The cause of the fire is under investigation but is not considered suspicious, Douglass said.

There were no civilian or firefighter injuries reported.

Firefighters from the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills, Village of Barrington, Barrington-Countryside, Fox River Grove and Nunda Rural fire departments assisted Cary at the scene.
