Victoria fire crews were called to a Bay Street apartment building in the early hours of Saturday for a report of afire.

Victoria Fire Department Battalion Chief Brian Elvedahl said crews received the call just before 5 a.m., with those first on scene reporting seeing flames coming from a third-floor balcony.

Elvedahl said crews were able to quickly put out the fire, and prevented it from spreading into the apartment itself.

There were no injuries reported, and crews started leaving the scene by around 6 a.m.

Elvedahl was unable to say if anyone was displaced due to the fire, though residents of surrounding units were able to return to their homes.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
