Springs firefighters quickly extinguished a fire that broke out in a bedroom where work was being done Friday afternoon.

The Springs Fire Department was called to 36 Cedar Ridge Drive at about 2:20 p.m. A worker was alone in the house and a drop cloth, or something similar, somehow caught fire, according to Darrin Downs, the first assistant fire chief. 

The East Hampton Town fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause. 

Chief Downs said that the fire was put out quickly and that the damage was limited to the bedroom. There was smoke damage in other areas of the house, he said. 

The Amagansett Fire Department's rapid intervention team was called to the fire, while the East Hampton Fire Department stood by in case Springs received any other calls.
