GENEVA – Firefighters were called to put out a fire Wednesday in a plastic garbage can in an alley behind businesses on the northwest corner of State and Third streets, Fire Chief Steve Olson said.

No one was hurt, and the only damage was to the garbage can, he said.

The fire was called in at 1:30 p.m., and when firefighters arrived, local business owners already were spraying it with extinguishers, Olson said.

“We finished it up with water,” he said. “There was smoke. It was a minor incident. It is not suspicious at this time. We don’t have a cause.”
