Firefighters battle downtown building fire


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Firefighters were called to a building fire Sunday night in downtown Jacksonville.

The fire happened at a building near the intersection of East Forsyth Street and North Clay Street. Crews were called to the scene at about 9:15 p.m.

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to get the fire under control. The total damage done to the building is still being investigated.

"The inside of the building is scorched pretty heavily," said Fire Chief Marty Senterfitt with JFRD. "We won't know the structural integrity until we really see it. Right now it seems to be in pretty good shape."

Jacksonville Fire Rescue said no one was in the building at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

The State Fire Marshal will now investigate the cause of the fire.
