Jefferson City house fire under investigation

A Jefferson City home suffers minimal damage during a fire Saturday night just east of the downtown.

Firefighters were called to the home in the 400 block of E. Capital Street just before 9 p.m.  When they arrived, smoke and fire were showing from a side window on the first floor of the two-story home.

Firefighters confirmed no one was inside, and the fire was contained to the room of origin.

The cause remains under investigation.
