Fire action at 551 Observer
In case you’re wondering what’s going on downtown at the Skyline building at 551 Observer Highway…
Small rubbish fire
About a half hour ago, fire alarms were activated and smoke conditions were prevalent within the building. Fire companies responded, and had trouble locating the source of the smoke. At one point they believed there was a problem with the HVAC units on the roof, but later determined it was pulling smoke from another unit.
It was eventually determined that a small rubbish fire in apartment 12F – which was under construction – was the source of the fire and smoke. They quickly “knocked down” the fire, and felt the situation was under control. The building is now being vented.
