Roof work causes smoke in Donner Center


Follow The Republic:


COLUMBUS — Columbus firefighters were sent to Donner Center, 739 22nd St., after staff reported they could see and smell smoke in the building at about 2:18 p.m. today.

When Battalion Chief Mike Compton arrived, he found a construction crew working on the roof of the building. Firefighters learned that construction crews were making repairs using a torch and sealant materials.

Compton said that when the construction crew used the torch in the area of an air handling unit, the heated sealant material produced smoke, which entered the building through ductwork.

Firefighters used ladders and a thermal imaging camera to make sure there was no fire in the building.

No damages were reported and Donner Center staff re-entered the building after the investigation was completed.
