Due to an impending partial roof collapse, firefighters are in a defensive fire strategy. A collapse zone has been established.

High winds are now making conditions challenging and dangerous, but are starting to make progress. Multiple hose lines were laid to protect exposure buildings on all sides of the fire building.

It is unknown at this time what the preliminary cause of the fire is.

All occupants have been evacuated from the structure and are all okay.
