Minor fire in office building quickly put out

A cadre of emergency responders raced to Newport Center for a fire reported in a high-rise office building Saturday morning, but it turned out to be a minor blaze without injuries or major property damage.

The fire, reported at about 8:00 a.m., did not spread beyond a computer server room on the 13th floor of 610 Newport Center Drive, according to a news release from the Newport Beach Fire Department. Light smoke seeped onto the 12th floor

Apparently, the fire started in an air conditioning unit and caused about $3,000 in damage.
