REDDING, Calif. - Firefighters extinguished a fire they say was caused by drug paraphernalia Wednesday morning. 

The Redding Fire Department responded to the 800 block of Mission De Oro Drive around 5:30 a.m. and found smoke coming from the front door of a two-story four-plex.

The fire was contained within five minutes to a single room. Crews remained at the scene until about 8:30 a.m. for overhaul. 

They say the fire alarms and sprinklers activated, causing some water damage to the building. 

Two people were able to get out of the home. Firefighters treated one person for smoke inhalation and released them at the scene. 

Crews said the fire was caused by drug paraphernalia in the room.
