Norwich — Firefighters put out a small fire at the St. Vincent de Paul Place soup kitchen just before 7 a.m. Sunday.

The soup kitchen, located at 120 Cliff St.  was not open Sunday but fire officials said it will reopen Monday. No one was injured and the building wasn't damaged.

According to the city fire department, the first firefighters to arrive didn’t find any smoke or fire, but an alarm was sounding and heat and smoke detectors were activated.

Firefighters searched the building and found a plastic can full of cloths and rags burning in a storage room on the first floor. They extinguished the fire and then cleared the smoke. The city fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.

All Norwich companies, a Mohegan Tribe F.A.S.T. team and rescue truck from East Great Plains responded to the fire.
