QUINCY -- A cause has not been determined for a Thursday afternoon fire that damaged a northwest Quincy home.

Firefighters were called to 527 Lind just after 4 p.m.

Assistant Fire Chief Tom Bentley said the blaze was confined to one of the downstairs rooms of the two-story, two-apartment brick residence, with smoke damage throughout the rest of the first floor and only light smoke in the upstairs.

"Guys were able to have everything out in about five minutes," Bentley said. "It was all confined to that one room. It was not too bad."

Someone was moving out of the downstairs apartment, and someone was moving into the upstairs apartment, but no one was home at the time of the fire, Bentley said.

The investigation into the fire has been turned over to the Quincy Police Department, Bentley said.

Thirteen firefighters helped put the fire out. No injuries were reported.
