Fire at Morocco building

Local News

A Somerset business is cleaning up after a fire early Wednesday morning.

According to the building’s owner it started just before 6:00 a.m. when a vehicle caught fire.

Soon after, the flames spread to the Morocco Building along Centre Avenue.

Fortunately no one was hurt, and the building only suffered minor damage.

“The fire department made that very clear” Says Paul Morocco, the building’s owner. “they were thankful the building was a brick building, or that this would have been a much larger fire.”

Morocco also says most of the damage was limited to the windows and roof. 

There is also some smoke damage inside.

Investigators are still working to determine what caused that fire.
