HOLLAND, Mich. (June 3, 2014) — Employees at Challenge Manufacturing in Holland went back to work just hours after the roof of their building caught fire.

According to police, crews from the Public Safety Fire Services responded to the call at 8:24 p.m. on June 2. They contained the fire to a small section of the roof, and it was under control within half an hour.

Officials say the fire appears to be accidental, and that it likely started from sparks that ignited combustible framing that supported a skylight. They say there was little or no damage inside the building and employees went back to work within two hours.
