A fire at Beecher Place in Crescent Beach was quickly contained Monday afternoon.

Five fire trucks responded to the blaze, which was spewing smoke at around noon. The smoke was mostly cleared from the building shortly afterward.

According to the Beecher Place event calendar, there was a celebration of life planned in the facility from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.
