Electrical Fire Damages Ibm

Compiled From Wire Services

An electrical fire caused extensive smoke damage to IBM’s corporate headquarters, the company said Saturday.

There were no injuries in the fire that began about 7:30 p.m. Friday, after most of the 800 workers had left.

Cleanup will take several days and the building will not be open Monday.

The most serious damage was to a basement office, where a faulty light is believed to have started the fire, Wilson said.
