Investigators are trying to figure out whether there were working smoke detectors in the building, but say they’re a crucial tool to keep up to date.

“It’s always important,” Mark Lynch, Harrison Township Fire Chief, said. “Twice a year, change your batteries whenever the time clocks change in the fall and in the spring.”

An investigator has been called to determine the cause of the fire.

While the building is not considered a total loss, at least $150,000 in damage was done by the fire.
