BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport firefighters say they were able to put out a dumpster fire quickly this morning before it caused a lot of damage.

The fire started in the back of the boarded-up rectory at Saint Cyril Church, and extended into part of the building on Church Street.

They say even though the building was vacant, there were still some safety concerns.

Firefighters got the fire under control in a few minutes and there were no injuries.
