BEDFORD - A fast-moving fire destroyed half of an office building Tuesday evening, Deputy Fire Chief Mark Klose said.

Klose said the fire, which was reported about 5 p.m. Tuesday, started in an office at the southeast corner of Building A at the Cedar Point Office Park.

He said it reached the roof and quickly spread to the rest of the building, which he said is "a total loss."

The other half of the complex, though, suffered only minor water damage. Electricity and heat were restored to Building B Tuesday night and office workers were able to inhabit that half of the building, he said.

"A firewall and the firefighters' efforts saved Building B," Klose said.

Klose said the fire is not considered suspicious, though no cause is known. Nobody was injured, he said.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
