A Gilbert industrial complex went up in flames early Monday.
About 2 a.m. fire crews responding to 701 N. Golden Key St., near Cooper and Guadalupe roads, found smoke pouring from the structure, fire spokesman Capt. Rob Duggan said.
Firefighters went inside to battle the blaze but were called out when the flames started to penetrate the roof, Duggan said.
“It probably took an hour so to get the fire under control once they pulled everyone out,” Duggan said.
The single-story block building, about three-fourths the size of a football field, houses several businesses. About 95 percent of the roof was destroyed, as well as extensive computer equipment.
The property owner’s initial damage estimate is $2 million, Duggan said.
