Liberal firefighters were called at 1:29 pm Thursday to 44 Plaza Dr. for a reported fire on the roof of the building. The first fire units arrived on scene at 1:33 pm and firefighters were directed to a smoldering fire located in roofing material around the base of an air conditioning unit.

Firefighters also encountered a light smoke condition inside of one business and with the assistance of Liberal Police officers began evacuating surrounding businesses as a precaution. The fire was located and extinguished with minimal extension to the building and was declared under control at approximately 1:50 pm. The fire is believed to have been started by roofing material ignited by a torch use to seal the material. Two businesses suffered water damage from the efforts to extinguish the fire.
