No one was hurt in a Wednesday afternoon fire on Campbell's Island.

East Moline firefighters were called at 4:51 p.m. Wednesday to 205 Summit St. where a one-and-a-half story home was on fire, according to East Moline Fire Department Capt. Bruce Colmer.

Capt. Colmer said firefighters had the blaze under control in about 10 minutes. It is believed the fire started in a mattress, but the cause of the fire was unknown Wednesday evening.

No one was at the residence during the fire and no one was injured, according to Capt. Colmer. The home appeared salvageable, he said, with fire damage in a bedroom and smoke damage throughout the house.

East Moline Police, Rock Island County deputies, and firefighters from Barstow and Silvis assisted at the scene.
