Modesto firefighters had to deal with two separate fires Sunday morning.

The first fire was reported around 7 a.m. when an apartment caught fire on Sutter Avenue, just a few blocks away from one of their fire stations. When firefighters arrived there was heavy fire on the first floor of a two story building, and they were able to stop it from climbing to the second floor.

The second fire occurred at 9:33 a.m. at the Sherwin-Williams Paint store on McHenry Avenue, south of Standiford Avenue. The building was on fire and filled with smoke before employees arrived to open the store. Firefighters found a small fire and quickly contained it before it reached hundreds of gallons of flammable paint.

The cause of both fires are still under investigation, and neither had any reported injuries.
