SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - An electrical fire at an industrial building in Scottsdale has been extinguished after 70 employees were evacuated.

Scottsdale Fire Department officials say Thursday afternoon’s blaze was at St. Jude Medical in a two-story industrial building that manufactures circuit boards.

They say the fire was on the second floor in a large electrical panel.

Fire units needed CO2 extinguishers because the fire was electrical in nature and water cannot be used.

The property was evacuated and there are no reported injuries.
