Corpus Christi firefighters battled a large building fire.

The fire broke out inside the Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center in Flour Bluff around 7:25 pm Tuesday evening.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they requested the incident to be updated to a two-alarm fire to assign more firefighters to the three story-building fire.

According to Captain James Brown, with the Corpus Christi Fire Department, said the fire was under control for twenty minutes.

The damage was contained to three officers, Capt. Brown said.

Captain Brown also tells KRIS 6 News that there was no sprinkler system inside the building. "Of Course that makes things difficult for us if the fire is above the first floor," Brown said.

Fire investigators say they are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
