Solar panels catch fire on top of Apple facility in Mesa, Arizona

Fire fighters in Mesa, Arizona, were called to the scene of a fire at an Apple facility in the city. The second-alarm blaze took a little over half an our to extinguish, and apparently didn't burn anything inside the building.

From Mesa's ABC 15 news station:

The fire appeared to be on solar panels on the roof of the building over a loading dock. The fire did not appear to be burning inside the building itself, officials said.

No injuries have been reported, and 12 people were evacuated from the facility, which Apple apparently plans to use as a data processing center. The exact cause of the fire is not yet known.
