Saturday's fire at the Finance Building in Downtown Cleveland looked like a scene from a movie.

Flames and clouds of smoke were seen coming from the roof and crowds gathered as Cleveland Firefighters worked to get the flames under control.

Throughout Sunday William Mangelluzzi, of All Disaster Services, was on scene as well as other emergency personnel assessing the fire, water, and structural damage.

For their own safety, all residents of the building have been ordered out until further notice.

Lt. Larry Gray of Cleveland Fire says that they hope to have everyone back home by Thursday.

The most well-known occupant in the building is the City Tap bar, which also will have to remain closed until it is deemed free of danger.

No one was injured in the ordeal.

We await an official report from Cleveland Fire and will post updates as soon as they become available.
