According to the Orlando Fire Department, crews responded to the fire around 12 a.m.

Arson investigators were at the building on Aug, 24, and both fires are now under investigation, officials said. Though the cause of the August fire remains undetermined, investigators said it was most likely accidental.

City officials previously told News 6 that the building had been condemned in July due to several safety violations, and because it was over occupancy.

No injuries were reported in the fire, and no other details have so far been released.

Those with information about the fire were asked to contact Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.
