Costa Mesa firefighters extinguished a fire in a three-story commercial building on Harbor Boulevard, authorities said Thursday.

Fire Capt. Mike Hurd and his crew responded to a report of a structure fire in the 2700 block at 8:43 p.m. Wednesday, according to a news release.

When they arrived, the crew saw smoke and fire coming from a business on the first floor of the building. They cut the padlock on a security gate to gain access to the building and knocked down the fire within 10 minutes, according to the release.

The arson investigation unit is investigating the cause of the fire, which caused $1,000 in damage to property in the building and $3,000 in damage to the structure, the release stated.

No injuries were reported.
