The fire broke out at around 10pm tonight on Thomas Street, and is understood to have been caused after a piece of molten material fell on the floor of the building's basement.

Two welders had been working in the building at the time, and managed to escape uninjured and raise the alarm.

Nobody else was injured in the fire.
