Long Beach fire crews quickly prevented a small blaze from growing any larger and consuming a business on Anaheim Street Saturday night.
The small fire started just after 9 p.m. and the flames spread into the business at 223 W. Anaheim Street, Long Beach Fire Department Capt. Jack Crabtree said.
Multiple fire engines responded to the call and crews were able to find the source of the blaze and extinguish it soon after they arrived, Crabtree said. According to Long Beach Police Lt. Scott Jenson, police assisted fire crews to divert traffic on Anaheim Street.
No injuries were reported and no one was displaced as a result of the flames, Crabtree said. The cause of the fire was not immediately available and fire investigators were on the scene.
