PHOENIX - Firefighters believe lightning struck an office building, setting it ablaze early Thursday morning in Phoenix.
Cleanup is underway at an office building near 40th Street and Camelback Road after a lightning sparked the fire and it ripped through the roof.
It happened around midnight at a building that houses a bank and Republic Monetary Exchange, a gold investment firm.
Office cleaning crews called firefighters when they arrived for work and saw flames.
Crews brought the blaze under control quickly.
In the aftermath, water could be seen pouring down from the roof and pooling on the floor. Soggy ceiling panels crumbled like cake.
No injuries were reported and Jim Clark, CEO of Republic Monetary Exchange, said the cleanup will take several days, but they do expect to reopen soon.
