An overnight structure fire shuts down the Ashland Plaza.

The call came in right around 2 Monday morning. NBC 5 was first on scene at the storefront of American Trails-- where the stairway next to the building reportedly caught fire.        

Our crews spoke with a resident who lives above the store-- he tells us he saved his cat by jumping out his window!

Close to 25 units weresent to battle the blaze. Officials say the fire was contained by 3:30. The investigation is on-going Monday morning.
