IOWA CITY (KWWL) -
The Iowa City Fire Department responded to a building fire Tuesday afternoon.

Around 4:15 p.m., crews were called to 2614 Indigo Court. Upon arrival, crews found the back of a duplex on fire with flames extending to two attic units.

Residents were out of the building when firefighters got there, but say one person was helped by a neighbor to get out of their residence.

The fire was put out in about 30 minutes.

According to the Iowa City Fire Department, damage to the two attic units is estimated at $75,000. The building at 2622 Indigo Court also sustained heat damage.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated by the Iowa City Fire Marshal's Office.
