That's the word from fire investigators.

The fire broke out around 6:30 Thursday in the 5500 block of Mapp Street.

The State Fire Marshal and investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms say the blaze was started by a spark from a cutting torch.

The roof took most of the damage on the building that was under construction.

Crews from the West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department and city crews battled the fire.
