According to news reports the Keith Building at East 17th and
Euclid is a 20 story, high-rise building.  Both the main fire
alarm and the its backup failed, so no fire alarm sounded.  Damage
seems to be limited to the basement, and smoke damage as it rose
through shafts and ducts in the building.

equipment in the same building.
