Sacramento firefighters contained a commercial structure fire at 17th and J streets Sunday morning.

Firefighters arrived at the scene of the two-alarm fire just after 10 a.m. inside Japanese Imports automotive repair.

Traffic along J Street has been closed, as has 17th Street near the burning building.

Crews were driving by Japanese Imports when they noticed smoke coming from inside the business.

The call was made and firefighters arrived and began battling the fire.

With the business being closed on Sunday, crews said there was no immediate signs of anyone inside the building while the fire was being extinguished. No injuries were reported, either.

A deeper investigation of the fire will begin once it is extinguished, crews said.

Sacramento police report a person was arrested interfering with fire crews at the time, but there was no indication at the time of this report to indicate any involvement with starting the fire.
