Ann Arbor firefighters quickly brought an attic fire in the 1100 block of Lincoln Avenue under control Tuesday morning, officials said.
Ann Arbor Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Vogel said crews were called to a home around 10:10 a.m. for a fire that broke out in a library in an attic area on the third floor.
There was a lot of smoke when firefighters arrived, Vogel added, and crews worked quickly to contain the blaze to the third floor and extinguish it.
The homeowner, a man in his 50s, was home at the time, but there were no reported injuries.
Vogel said the fire caused an estimated $20,000 in damages. The cause remains under investigation. The house was undergoing repairs at the time of the fire, officials said.
