BALTIMORE -- Firefighters are trying to determine the cause of a four-alarm fire that raged for hours and heavily damaged a commercial building in southwest Baltimore.

The fire was reported about 8 p.m. Friday in the Three Brothers building, which houses several businesses, including a coin laundry, Internet cafe and conveniences and liquor stores.

Officials say the roof of the 100-by-300-foot building collapsed, as did one of the walls. The fire was brought under control about 5 a.m. Saturday.

There were no injuries.

The family-owned Three Brothers building opened in 1959.
