SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) -- Investigators say lightning is believed to have caused a small fire at a Sparks warehouse Tuesday night

Firefighters got the call of a possible fire and explosion shortly before 8PM September 12, 2017 at Swan Products LLC at 909 East Glendale Avenue. They found a small fire burning in the insulation of the ceiling and through a vent onto the roof.

Upon putting it out, they found damage was contained to the ceiling and roof area, and workers, who had left the building after the fire call, were allowed back into the facility to continue their work.

No injuries were reported.
