The initial report indicated the fire occurred in a small mechanical space containing high voltage electrical equipment. Small damages were incurred, estimated to be at $1,000. No injuries were reported.

The two right lanes of University Avenue were shut down after approximately 15 units of firefighters arrived at the scene. People were allowed to return to the building after firefighters ventilated the large amount of smoke.
