Firefighters battled a blaze at the Aquatic Center at the College of Central Florida Tuesday night.

The building was damaged by the flames and smoke.

Public safety officers at the school notified the fire department at 9:03 p.m. and firefighters responded one minute later, finding approximately 30 percent of the building involved in fire. Firefighters quickly brought the fire under control, although much of the building was damaged by smoke.

Sixteen firefighters responded from four fire stations, including the one located on college property. Firefighters remained on scene for several hours. There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
