Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --Shortly before eight this morning, the Superior Fire Department was called to a home in the 900 block of Hughitt Avenue in Superior.

The house fire started in an ashtray in the front porch and moved toward the side of the house where a neighbor spotted the flames, and called 911.

The Superior Fire Department was able to quickly contain the blaze.
Fire Battalion Chief, Lane Halverson, says people should be more careful when putting out cigarettes.

No one was injured in the incident. Damage is estimated at a couple of thousand dollars.
