An early morning fire Thursday caused minor damage to the exterior of a Buford Highway bar in DeKalb County.

DeKalb County firefighters received a call from a passerby about 6:30 a.m. saying that there was smoke coming from the back of Rush Lounge in the 2700 block of Buford Highway, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Arriving firefighters found a small fire with heavy smoke behind the building that was quickly extinguished.

"All the damage appears to be on the outside of the structure," Daniel told AJC.com. He said a deck built on the back of the building was burned.

There was no damage inside the building.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
