A small fire broke out at Home Depot Sunday night, causing an estimated $50,000 to the store's outdoor garden center, according to Billings fire officials.

The fire was reported at 11:36 p.m., according to a Monday press release from Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff McCullough.

It was confined to a three-level rack containing some outdoor products, according to Billings Fire Department Battalion Chief Dave Gilbert.

No one was injured in the fire, which apparently started after the store closed Sunday.

The store's sprinkler system activated and helped confine the fire, which took firefighters about 15 minutes to fully extinguish, Gilbert said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
