MAYSVILLE, KY (FOX19) - Crews are trying to determine the cause of a fire that severely damaged a historic building in Maysville, Ky.

The fire broke out at around 4:30 p.m. The Cox Building is located at the corner of Third Street and Market Street in Maysville.

The building was in the middle of a major restoration, where it was going to become a culinary school and technical college. In the past, the building has housed a post office, a Masonic temple, a funeral parlor and a printing company.

The first and second floor of the buildings are still in tact.

Maysville Mayor David Cartmell credits quick action from the Maysville fire dept who got help from Ripley, Ohio's ladder truck - they were able to tag team it and knock it down fast.

"It's sickening, I live right next door to it, I used to own the building," said Cartmell. "It was in the middle of a total renovation for a culinary school and technical college. We just got 2.6 million dollars from Washington to do it."

One firefighter suffered minor injuries when the roof collapsed.

A cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
