TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Several crews battled a fire in a maintenance building at an assisted living facility in the Tucson area late Monday, Oct. 25.

The Green Valley Fire District said the blaze started around 8 p.m. at La Posada, a retirement community in Green Valley. The fire was knocked down by midnight and there were no injuries.

The building was far away from any of the living spaces so residents were not in danger.

The building’s roof collapsed and crews will have to go inside to pull everything out for an investigation.

There were no sprinklers inside the facility but officials said while they are recommended for a building that size, they’re not required.

The Corona de Tucson Fire District, Rural Metro Fire and the Drexel Heights Fire District helped GVFD battle the blaze.
