Apparently there was a roof collapse that sparked an electrical fire. Thank God no one was hurt.
Sounds like it could have been a lot worse. Glad no one was hurt. They mentioned that the building didn't have a sprinkler system or fire detection system. I am not sure what the size of the building was. But, other than restaurants, night clubs and other venues where people "assemble," stand-alone buildings under 12,000 square feet do not require sprinkler systems. Since I do not deal with detection systems, I am not familiar with their installation requirements. Though, I believe that a detection system would be required under current code.
