A commercial building in Henderson was damaged in a fire Wednesday morning.
The Henderson Fire Department was called to Sunkist Graphics at 401 E. Sunset Road, near Boulder Highway, about 6:15 a.m., department spokeswoman Kathleen Richards said. About 20 employees were inside the building when the fire started.
Although the official cause is still under investigation, Richards said officials believe the fire started in a machine inside the building. Employees tried to put the fire out but evacuated and called 911 when they couldn’t. The Clark County Fire Department helped knock down the blaze, which by then had spread to the roof.
By 8:20 a.m., the fire had been extinguished. No damage estimate was immediately available.
According to the business’ LinkedIn page, it was founded in 1983 and creates printed graphic components for slot machines as well as vehicle wraps, printed fabric and marketing materials.
