(EDGE) Dallas firefighters said a two-alarm fire at an LGBT resource center was intentionally set Friday morning, Dallas-Fort Worth's NBC affiliate reports.

Officials responded to a call about the fire in South Dallas around 6 a.m. Friday and were able to put out the blaze within an hour. Although no one was injured, Jason Evans, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman, told NBC DFW investigators found that the fire was arson-related. 

"The fire was determined to be incendiary in nature, and was set at some point at the rear of the building," he told the news station.

NBC DFW reports the LBGT center is operated by Abounding Prosperity, Inc. Representatives said the building is heavily damaged, which will impact services offered to people, like HIV testing.

In a Facebook post, the organization discussed the fire.
