GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A fire broke out at an office building in Grand Rapids early Thursday morning, keeping crews busy for hours.

It happened at the Barristers Building on Division Avenue N. shortly before 1:00 a.m.  While there wasn’t much in the way of flames showing, getting everything under control proved to be time-consuming.

Nearly a dozen fire trucks and other emergency vehicles were on the scene at one point.

It is not clear what may have started the fire or how much damage was done to the interior of the office building.
