ATLANTA - Atlanta firefighters are watching for any flare-ups following a two-alarm fire at a building in downtown Atlanta.
An abandoned building off Auburn Avenue caught on fire Sunday morning near the Downtown Connector. Firefighters were able to put out the flames before noon.
Parts of Auburn Avenue and Bell Street were blocked as crews work to put the fire out. No one was inside the building.
"The fire was going for a good 20 or 35 minutes before we could get it contained," Atlanta Fire Sgt. Cortez Stafford said.

Channel 2 Action News viewers sent us photos and videos of smoke that could be seen for miles.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. Officials told Channel 2 the same building caught on fire last summer and they knew it would be a challenge.
"It's a large building... because we knew this would be an extended operation," Stafford said.
