The Iowa City Fire Department responded to a residential structure fire Sunday.

According to an Iowa City press release, fire engines, one ladder truck, and the battalion chief responded to 1035 Howell St. for the reported fire at approximately 10:01 a.m. Engine 3 responded less than four minutes later after fire offi- cials on scene reported smoke coming from the structure.

According to the release, fire crews found contents in a bedroom to be on fire, and firefighters quickly brought the fire under control. After remaining on scene for approximately two hours, offi- cials expect damage to the structure and contents to total $5,000.

The Iowa City fire marshal and Iowa City police will continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
