--

A construction site was damaged Saturday morning by a nearby dumpster fire, fire officials said.

Fire crews responded around 11:30 a.m. to the 200 block of West Gilman Street for reports of a dumpster fully engulfed in flames in the parking lot just east of HotCat, according to a release.

Firefighters found the first dumpster and a second dumpster that had also caught fire, officials said.

Crews put out the fires, and searched through the debris to determine a cause, but could not determine what started the fire, according to the release.

Some construction materials melted due to their proximity to the fire, officials said.
