BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Fire investigators are collecting evidence to figure out what caused a fire at an office building early Monday morning.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department was called out to a building on Underwood Avenue, which is off North Foster Drive, north of Choctaw Drive and south of Winbourne Avenue, around 2:15 a.m.

Officials said no one was inside at the time. They said it was once a home that had been converted into an office building, but there were no signs to indicate what business was using it.

Investigators were able to determine the fire started in the southeast corner and caused lots of damage to the room where it started.

The investigation into the cause is ongoing.
