Firefighters proceeded up a stairwell to a loft and office area with computers and office equipment.

“Crews entered the building and found a small fire in an office on the second floor, ” said Battalion Chief Mark Robertson.

They  managed to quickly extinguish the flames but heavy charring was visible during a subsequent search.
