Fire at giant Apple plant in Arizona quickly controlled
A fire at a huge plant owned by tech giant Apple Inc. in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa caused a section of the roof to collapse, but no one was hurt.
Deputy Chief Forrest Smith of Mesa Fire and Medical says Tuesday's fire at the 1.3 million-square-foot plant was confined to a section of the roof over a loading dock. He says the intense blaze may have been sparked by rooftop solar panels.
Crews from Mesa and several other fire departments battled the blaze for 35 minutes before gaining control. About 45 workers were evacuated.
