Firefighters extinguished a small fire in the arctic entryway of a home in Switzer Village early Sunday morning, according to Capital City Fire and Rescue.

CCFR spokesman Tom Matthews said multiple engines responded to the 12:45 a.m. call at the mobile park, located in the 6500 block of Glacier Highway.

Firefighters found the fire still burning in a wall and extinguished the flames, Matthews said in a statement. The fire was put out by 1:06 a.m., and the entire incident was cleared by 1:26 a.m.

A resident of the home had called 911, the statement said. The resident reported the fire was confined to the arctic entryway.

No injuries were reported. A damage estimate was not available. CCFR did not say what caused the fire.
