A fire caused minor damage Thursday afternoon to a trailer at Buttercreek Apartments on Southwest 11th Street, Hermiston. No one was injured.

Umatilla County Fire District Battalion Chief Jimmy Davis said the cause of the fire was under investigation, but fire officials think it may have been due to a cigarette.

Davis said the fire burned through one part of the floor of the trailer, causing minimal damage.
