SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- An investigation is underway after a fire erupted at a Springfield business around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Eugene Springfield Fire crews received reports of the fire just after midnight at Big Lots at 5790 Main St. When they arrived, they discovered flames coming from a dumpster in the loading dock area and some smoke inside the building. 

Officials say a sprinkler system slowed down the fire - giving fire crews time to put it out and the fire marshal says there was no damage to the building.

There were reports of two to three people in the area. The cause of the fire is unknown.
