Last night, not long after revelers finished ringing in 2013, a historic building in downtown Tucson caught fire in a blaze that dispatched two alarms and more than 40 firefighters.

According to a press release from the Tucson Fire Department, the building that sits on the west end of the 100 East Congress block caught fire around 3:30 a.m. Crews on the scene determined that the fire was in the building's attic space and, after finding no one inside, moved to fight the blaze from outside the building.

After ladder trucks extinguished most of the fire, crews moved in to extinguish the rest of the blaze, finding that multiple A/C units had fallen throughout the roof. The fire's total damages, cause and origins have yet to be determined, though the building is said to have suffered extensively.
