        The article was initially dated 2/8 instead of 2/7 (our settings reset occasionally for some reason, so the default time was a few hours ahead of our local time).

      This happened November 16, 2019. We were walking out of Dave and Busters to the garage. The smoke was contained to the garage area but was so think , black and noxious you couldn’t walk out.
      We notified the 2 cops in D and Bs and called 911. We left the building and heard the trucks arrive quickly.

        Wait, when did this actually occur, November 16, 2019, or this week? This is very confusing.

    What caused the fire

      Still under investigation, but it is believed to be mechanical in nature.
