The Lodi Fire Department responded to a structure fire call Wednesday night on the 1500 block of East Pine Street.
The back half of the vacant building was already engulfed in flames by the time crews arrived shortly after 10:30 p.m., said Division Chief Aimee New of the Lodi Fire Department.
"There was quite a bit of damage," New said.
No one was injured in the fire, which caused roughly $50,000 to $70,000 in damage, New said.
The structure is located outside the city's fire hydrant system, so a water tender was brought to the site in order to supply enough water to extinguish the flames.
Crews were on the scene until 3 a.m., and kept the fire from spreading to two other structures on the property.
While no one was injured, an employee of Pride Landscape & Concrete, which leases the structures on the property, lived in the building that caught on fire before moving out one week ago. The person moved to a new location and was not living at the building at the time of the fire.
Lodi firefighters and police are still investigating the cause of the fire.
