NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans firefighters have extinguished a small fire that broke out inside a well-known French Quarter bar and briefly shut down part of Bourbon Street.

The fire department says the fire started Wednesday morning in a central heating unit on the third floor of Pat O'Brien's bar.

Workers told firefighters that dust on the heating unit ignited and filled the building with smoke.

The fire department says the fire was contained to the heating unit and only caused minor smoke and water damage to the building. No injuries were reported.

Pat O'Brien's opened in 1933 and is known for its signature Hurricane drink.
