CHICO, Calif. -

A fire inside a DeGarmo maintenance building damaged offices inside before fire crews were able to get on scene and keep it from spreading.

The blaze was reported around 5:00 p.m. at the building off The Esplanade and Leora Court, behind Shasta View Elementary School.

"It appears the office area took some smoke and heat damage, which was some fire damage to the doors and up on the side of the office itself," said Chico Fire Division Chief Aaron Lowe.

The offices reportedly house Chico Area Recreation Department parks superintendents.

The cause of the fire and cost of damage have yet to be determined.
