Smoke fills Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier building

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Fire crews were called to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier building in downtown Waterloo Monday morning.

Rescue crews showed up just after 1 a.m. on a report of the building filled with smoke, caused by an apparent electrical shortage in the building's basement.

Publisher David Braton said, "One of our sports reporters heard it about 1:00 on the 3rd floor so it was a pretty significant blast."

Fire officials believe rain water seeped into the building and may have caused the shortage, but they are still investigating.

No one was hurt
