CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Fire Department has contained a structure fire that broke out on Cohasset Road Wednesday morning. 

The department first received reports of the smoke around 8:15 a.m. in a garage-type unit. 

Firefighters found heavy smoke and fire coming from the second-floor unit. 

Chico Fire Chief Steve Standridge said that several businesses work out of the unit where the fire first broke out. No one was injured. 

The fire is now fully contained. 

Standridge said the most challenging part of containing the fire was making sure it didn't spread to other units. 

"Just trying to find the scene of the fire, it extended into the attic space which is of great concern as it can spread from one unit to the other and then just trying to make sure it didn’t get any further than it did," Standridge said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
