Phoenix’s NBC News affiliate reports

The headquarters of the Arizona Democratic Party in Phoenix caught on fire early Friday. The Phoenix Fire Department said firefighters were dispatched to the building near Central Avenue and Thomas Road around 1 a.m. for reports of smoke coming from the building.

When crews arrived, they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the building. “We’ve lost all of our stuff — computers, equipment, printers, the files, it’s all gone,” Democratic Party Chair Steven Slugocki said. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. An investigation is ongoing.
