SCRANTON -- Quick action by police officers helped put out a fire in Scranton.

Two Scranton police officers spotted smoke in the back of a building on North Main Avenue while they were driving by around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday.

They called firefighters who were able to quickly stop the flames on a back porch of an apartment in the rear of Bill's Sporting Goods.

No one was hurt and firefighters say the fire appears to be an accident. It's still under investigation.
