A late-night porch fire on Central Avenue is still under investigation but not considered suspicious.

Dubuque Assistant Fire Marshal Mike McMahon said the department was called at 10:51 a.m. Monday to a home at 2461 1/2 Central Ave., where a fire had started on the back porch. He said the fire was quickly contained within a few minutes, causing only surface damage to the back porch area.

McMahon said the residents, a woman and two young children, were home at the time of the fire but were not injured. He added they were able to stay at the home after the fire was extinguished.
