Firefighters used a saw to cut through the roof deck and were able to locate the fire. They extinguished the fire, checked for hotspots and extensions, and have communicated that all fire is out at this time.

According to Acting Shift Commander Raymond Smith, it is possible that the fire started due to maintenance work on the roof. However, MFRD's Fire Marshal's Office is on scene to conduct a routine investigation.
