Lawrence firefighters quickly suppressed a house fire Sunday afternoon in northwest Larence.

Capt. Chris Morrow of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical said firefighters responded at about 3:30 p.m. to a reported structure fire at 3545 Morning Dove Circle. Firefighters arrived to find light smoke coming from the exterior of the rear of the duplex unit after a neighbor had knocked back the flames with a garden hose, he said.

Fire damage was limited to the rear exterior of the building, and the residents were able to return to the duplex, he said. No one was injured in the incident, which remains under investigation, he said.
