Nothing substantial, just went past it and you can't even tell there was a fire.  Looks like it was in one of the big fans on top the building. 
Must not be that big a deal either, as nothing has been further reported and by 3:30 they were gone from the facility.

Yep, seems to be fairly quiet now.

Here's the link to video on the Muncie newspaper's video page:

At one point, the flames were very visible on the rooftop.

It was between the two vents.  Hopefully it isn't anything big damage wise.

We can also add this nugget...

That is basically the final hurdle in terms of getting everything in place.

But I'll add, they have been there every day since the announcement working on the building.  This week they fixed a few issues with the boundary fence as well.

As I kinda suspected, someone with a cutting torch got too close to insulation.

Details in today's (Thursday, Thanksgiving Day) The Star Press:
