Crews were called to 1219 Burns avenue at around 10:12 a.m. for a possible house fire.

When they arrived, crews found smoke and flames coming from the roof of the two-story duplex.

Battalion Chief Brian Platz says firefighters had the fire under control in 30 minutes and out in 40 minutes.

No injuries were reported.
