Fire broke out Wednesday morning at Rogers Electrical Wholesale Ltd. on Jenkins Avenue in Summerside.

Summerside fire chief Jim Peters said his department got the call at about 7:30 a.m. and when fire fighters arrived, there were flames in the attic.

The provincial fire marshal conducted an investigation and determined the fire was caused by a fault in an electrical circuit serving lights on the second floor.

"We were able to puncture through the ceiling and get water up into the attic and knock the fire out. So fire damage [was] confined to the attic," Peters said.
