CANTON, Ga. -- Fire completely engulfed a Canton office complex Monday morning, causing extensive damage to the building.

Crews first responded to the fire at the Vince Merolla Executive Suites on Sixes Road at about 5 a.m. The smoke and flames could be seen from the Sixes Road exit on Interstate 575, according to Cherokee County Fire Battalion Chief David Tilson.

Cherokee County Fire spokesman Tim Cavender said nine offices were houses in the building, including a Baptist church and the Bridgemill Property Association.

Both lanes of Sixes Road were closed as crews battled the blaze. One lane was reopened at around 7:15 a.m.

Cavendar said the cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was injured.
