Investigators are trying to figure out the cause of a fire at a building that used to house a business just outside of Uptown Charlotte.

Firefighters say flames were shooting out of the vacant building at the corner of Parkwood Avenue and East 16th Street around midnight Thursday.

WBTV has learned that it took 35 firefighters more than 40 minutes to knock down the flames.

The building was badly damaged with an estimated $50,000 in damages.  Crews were able to keep the fire from damaging any nearby structures.

No one was hurt.  The fire is still under investigation.
