A vacant building in Saint John's north end was hit by fire again on Wednesday night, the third time in the last 60 days.

Firefighters were called to 168 Main Street just before midnight where an outside wall at the back of the building caught fire.

Acting Platoon Chief Barry Oickle said the firefighters managed to stop the fire from spreading.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.
