No one was injured in an early morning fire Wednesday that damaged two downtown buildings in Montgomery. City Administrator Brian Heck said the fire was under control in about 5½ hours. Montgomery firefighters remained on the scene later this morning. The department responded to a call at 3:45 a.m. reporting a fire on the 100 block of South First Street. When firefighters arrived, they observed flames engulfing the second floor of a vacant building at 104 S. First St. When the fire began to spread to a nearby structure, firefighters helped an apartment's occupants safely leave the building. The fire began on the second floor of the vacant building; however, its cause has not yet been determined. New Prague, Le Center, and Lonsdale fire departments provided ladder trucks and Jordan's department provided personnel.
