Lemont firefighters Tuesday morning were able to quickly extinguish a small fire at Gerharz Funeral Home, 501 State St.
The fire started around 7:30 a.m. on the second floor and crawled up a wall, damaging a soffit and a portion of the roof, said Battalion Chief Tim Oslakovich. The fire was out by 8 a.m.
"As far as fires go, it's the kind we like to see," Oslakovich said. "Quick, neat, no injuries and no major damage."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
