Cortland City Firefighters responded to a fire at the Marietta packaging company early Friday morning.

An employee spotted the fire and called 911 and the building was evacuated by the time rescuers arrived.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a 15 foot pile of plastic collapsible totes on fire outside the docking area. The interior and exterior sprinkler system in the building is credited with limiting the fire somewhat.

Firefighters estimate the blaze caused about $25,000 in damage, but that figure could go higher if products were lost due to smoke damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
