A small fire damaged an old city building Monday night.

According to Mike Thompson, the shift commander with the Topeka Fire Department, said the former Taylor Roofing building in the 1100 block of S.W. Buchanan suffered damage around an exterior door.

The fire was reported around 7:30 p.m. and “was out in three or four minutes,” he said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but Thompson said it may have been started by some kinds in the area.

“This one room is not connected to the rest of the building,” he said.

No injuries were reported as a result of the fire and Thompson didn’t have an estimated cost of damage.
