An out building caught fire in the early morning hours of Saturday at 207 East Spruce Street.

Junction City firefighters responded to the area at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday to battle a blaze in a small, aluminum out building behind the Marriot Hotel.

The building was on the opposite side of active railroad tracks from a hydrant, forcing crews to shut down all train traffic for the duration of the fire.

According to a press release from Junction City Fire Chief Terry Johnson, crews started with a defensive exterior attack, controlling the fire from the outside, before moving inside to fully extinguish the blaze.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but Junction City Fire Captain Nabus was assigned to investigate.

According to the release, no utilities were involved and damage is estimated at $5,000.
