Somerville firefighters put out a small fire Monday afternoon at the MBTA's Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility in Somerville, according to Deputy Chief Patrick Sullivan of the Somerville Fire Department.

Sullivan said it was a "small fire up in the ductwork" in the facility. Often known by it's former name, the Boston Engine Terminal, the Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility is in Somerville's Inner Belt neighborhood near Charlestown.

Firefighters responded at about 3:09 p.m. and were finished fighting the fire at around 4:35 p.m. "It wasn't that involved," Sullivan said, but it required a lot of manpower to make sure the fire didn't extend anywhere.

Sullivan said he didn't believe there were any injuries associated with the fire. As of Monday evening he did not know the cause.
