A fire about 8 p.m. Sunday burned part of the exterior of a building behind 934 N. 19th St. but caused no interior damage and no injuries, Waco Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Kerwin said.
The building had been modified to house a garage and an apartment. The sole resident of the apartment was home and called for assistance when he saw the fire.
A unit from the nearby Station 6 controlled the blaze within minutes. Several other engines and a ladder truck also responded, but most had left the scene within an hour.
The resident was not displaced.
Kerwin said neither he nor firefighters could identify the cause of the blaze.
