Fire crews quickly extinguished a residential structure fire on the patio of an apartment complex Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. 

Fire trucks responded to the fire at 215 Del Monte Avenue about 4:30 p.m. 

CalFire Battalion Chief Brandon Leitzke called the blaze a “small fire,” and did not result in any injuries or significant damage. 

The initial investigation determined the fire was caused by a lit cigarette discarded “too close to combustible” materials, Leitzke said.
