Fire crews rush to a fire in a vacant apartment building in south Lincoln.  No one is currently living in the building because of renovations.  Fire officials said just last week crews were called to this same building for a fire. 

Fire crews were called to the vacant apartment building near 11th and C streets around 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday.  Fire officials said most of the fire was on the outside of the building between the third and fourth floors.  Fire crews quickly put the fire out.  Officials said they've been to this building before.  "We had a suspicious fire here last week.  It was actually companies that are here tonight that had the fire.  And as I said the fire is still under investigation by the Bureau of Fire Prevention," Battalion Chief Benes said.  

Fire officials don't' yet have an estimate on the extent of the damages.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
