A fire has damaged part of a vacant high-rise office building in downtown Lubbock. Investigators say nobody was hurt in the blaze Thursday night at the 11-story Omni building.

Investigator Robert Loveless, with the Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office, says utilities had been shut off in the building because it's not occupied. Loveless says firefighters had to pump water into the building's sprinkler system.

The cause of the fire is sought. No damage estimate was immediately available.
