The fire was reportedly caused by a roofer's leaking propane torch, and was quickly extinguished. The building only suffered minor damage, as it was contained to the roofing material.

To avoid another incident like this, fire officials remind users of products like "tiger torches" to check the condition of the hose and to shut off the fuel at the tank, rather than the torch control valve.
