LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Fire and Rescue responded to the scene of a two-alarm fire at a warehouse in northeast Lincoln.

The call came in just before 10 p.m. Sunday at Rexnord Addax, near 60th and Fletcher.

LFR says crews arrived to smoke coming from the building. They found fire inside and were able to get it extinguished quickly.

Battalion Chief Jeremy Gegg said it appears the fire spread up some sort of an exhaust shaft, catching part of the roof on fire.

No employees were inside at the time, and crews were able to get the fire under control relatively quickly.

The inspector determined the fire was in the industrial oven.  The cause is still under investigation.  The damage was at least $25,000.
