The LBJ hospital finance building which houses about 20 employees was on fire yesterday afternoon around 2 p.m. The LBJ maintenance crew helped kill the fire before it spread to the entire financial building.

LBJ employees present at the scene told Samoa News the fire, which was on the roof of the building that they suspect it was caused by an electric wire.

Fire fighters arrived at the scene and assisted the maintenance crew in putting out the fire. Police officers at the scene took photos of the fire and said the fire did not damage the building, just the roof.

A police officer said the financial records were not burned, but did suffer water damage. Fortunately, no one was injured. Calls and messages left for the LBJ CEO were not answered as of press time.
