Downtown Business Erupts In Flames

A fire breaks out in a building near Creighton's campus.

Omaha Fire Battalion Chief Troy Brannen says a medic unit passed through the area and spotted smoke coming from the building near 21st and Burt Streets.

Crews put out the flames in about twenty minutes, but there is heavy smoke damage throughout the building.

The building houses Anderson Electric and Pump Supply and Stone Enterprises.

Officials say no one was in the building at the time of the fire but they are investigating if someone had been in the building earlier that day.
