On Friday September 23, 2016, shortly after 1:00 am, a commercial fire alarm was received from the Gowan Company building (formerly the Lee Hotel) at 390 South Main Street. Arriving Yuma Fire Department personnel found smoke coming from the building. A portion of a wall appeared to have blown outward and flames were visible inside. Firefighters were able to quickly reach and extinguish the fire.

Damage was contained to the southwest section of the building where the fire originated, and included both a small amount of fire damage and damage from what appeared to have been a moderate explosion in a work area. There was no one in the building at the time of the fire and there were no injuries. Fire investigators are working to determine the cause but did not appear to be suspicious in nature.
