CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A morning fire that caused $15,000 to a commercial building in the North Cape Industrial Park has been ruled accidental in nature. The fire most likely was caused by overheated equipment.
At 6:54 a.m., Cape Coral Fire units responded to 911 call reporting a business on fire at 932 NE 24th Lane. When units arrived, smoke was showing from a multiple-unit building and was found to be coming from Unit #5, AA Same Day Garage Doors. Entry to the fire was made by Engine 5, and firefighters extinguished the flames by 7:09 a.m. The structure was not occupied at the time.
The Cape Coral Fire Investigator determined that the fire started along the bottom of the right-side firewall near the location of a battery and equipment.
