Investigators are trying to determine what sparked a fire at a garage/storage unit Saturday morning.

Firefighters arriving at North 8th and Fort streets in Omaha saw flames and smoke and were relieved to find no one was inside, as was first reported.

“It did come in as parties possibly trapped," said Omaha Fire Battalion Chief Robb Gottsch. "The caller, I believe is a neighbor, thought someone may be in the residence. We got here pretty quick on scene and talked with the tenant that owns the property and they stated no one was in there.”
