Fire damaged an office building Monday in Garden Grove.
The two-story Spectrum office building is located in the 7400 block of Chapman Avenue.
Details about how the fire started were not immediately available. No injuries were reported.
Firefighters were in defensive mode, meaning no one was attaching the fire from inside the building. Firefighters on at least two ladder trucks were spraying water on flames.

"Firefighters initially went inside to search for people and confine the three-alarm blaze," the Orange County Fire Authority said. "Due to the extreme fire conditions, crews were pulled out and they went into a defensive mode."
Fire quickly burned through the roof of the building, sending a tower of smoke into the air. As the blaze increased in size, OCFA called more crews to the scene.
Crews knocked down the fire in about two and a half hours.
