BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials say a fire has damaged an office building on Boise State University's campus.

Boise fire Chief Tom Pawek says firefighters arrived Saturday night to find smoke coming from the front and right-hand side of the building that is part of BSU's robotics laboratory.

Crews were able to extinguish the flames, and there were no reports of injuries.

Pawek says the building had been closed and nobody was inside at the time of the fire.

Officials about 25 percent of the structure was damaged.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
