A welding torch caused a fire at the Lofts at Sylvan|Thirty, causing fire, water, and smoke damage at an unoccupied portion of the development.

Cooper Smith Koch, a spokesman for Sylvan|Thirty, said that the small fire in the unoccupied portion of the loft development within the mixed-use development at Sylvan and Fort Worth avenues was extinguished, causing some fire, smoke, and water damage to the still under-construction building. According to DallasNews.com, it was a four-alarm blaze at the $50 million development in West Dallas.

“Fire was extinguished within about half an hour. No one was injured. No residents, who live on the far north end of the lofts, were affected,” he said via Facebook. “Cox Farms Market remained open and construction continued on the other areas.”

This is the second time a fire has damaged a building at Sylvan|Thirty, with the first gutting a retail area slated to house a yoga studio and restaurant.
