Firefighters learned that the door was frozen shut from the cold and an employee had used a heating torch to thaw it. The heat from the torch started a small fire in the insulation in the walls near the door.

Firefighters sprayed water into the walls and extinguished the fire. No one was hurt and the building sustained no structural damage.
