Texas State Fire Marshals are working to determine the cause of a weekend fire that damaged State Representative Todd Hunter's southside office in Corpus Christi.

It was just after 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning when an unknown man knocked on the door of Fire Station 14 to tell the crew there about a nearby fire on the 5900 block of South Staples Street.

First responders said no one was inside the building when it was on fire. It is unclear at this time if marshals suspect any foul play. Captain James Brown with the Corpus Christi Fire Department confirmed the state's involvement in the investigation is due to the fact that Hunter is a state representative. 

The Corpus Christi Fire Department was seen using a drone Monday to get a bird's eye view of the damage. 

The building, part of the Bay Area Professional Plaza, had major damage to the roof.
