WAUKESHA - Fire investigators in Waukesha were searching Thursday for the cause of a fire at a medical office building.
The fire happened at about 2:30 a.m. at the Moreland Medical Center at the corner of Delafield Street and Moreland Boulevard.
TODAY'S TMJ4's Nick Montes reports that as of 5:30 a.m., firefighters were still working on the rooftop of the south side of the building.
"The whole parking lot was simply lit up like a Christmas tree... I thought, 'Oh my goodness, what is going on?' " said Andrew Brien, who works in the building and lives nearby.
A fire battalion chief told Montes that a suite in the building caught fire.
The Waukesha Fire Department later explained that the suite had major damage, and the rest of the building took on "significant smoke damage."
Someone from Girtsen Restoration told Montes that a rooftop heating and air conditioning unit could be to blame.
