According to Szymanski, the fire started in a dumpster inside the building structure and burned through the roof causing the fire to spread. The fire is at Statewide Lighting, a lighting fixture business, which was closed at the time the fire started. The fire was reported just before 4 a.m. by parking enforcement officers on patrol.
