SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A fire destroyed an abandoned building in Barrio Logan early Wednesday morning, but no injuries were reported.

According to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, crews were called to the structure fire in the 3500 block of Dalbergia Street at around 2:50 a.m.

By the time firefighters arrived, the flames had already consumed much of the building. It took at least an hour to stop the fire from spreading.

A deputy fire chief at the scene told 10News that crews have battled fires at this same address multiple times in the past.

10News learned a fire occurred at the same location on April 14, and before that on Dec. 26, 2019.

Additionally, on Oct. 25, 2019, a fire erupted inside of the same building; a trash can fire was reported on the property six days earlier.

The cause of Wednesday’s fire is under investigation, and there is no immediate word on whether the fire is somehow connected to any of the previous incidents. No injuries were reported in any of those incidents.

No one was inside at the time of Wednesday's fire.
