UPDATE @ 1:32 p.m. (March 22):
The vice president for the company constructing the new CareSource building in downtown Dayton said all employees and construction workers are accounted for and there were no injuries in the fire this afternoon.
“We had an incident on the roof of the building,” said Troy Erbes, Vice President with Danis. “Some roof insulation caught on fire.”
Erbes said they are still working to determine what caused the fire to start.
“Now we’re in the investigation state,” Erbes said.
CareSource planned to open its new downtown Dayton campus in the spring of 2019.
The company had started construction last year on what is to be the first newly constructed office tower in downtown Dayton in a decade.
The six-story CareSource Center City is the first newly constructed downtown office project underway since the nonprofit - a fast growing Medicaid managed care company - broke ground on its Main Street headquarters.
The building, with construction led by Danis, will be at the site of the former Patterson Co-op High School on the 100 block of East First Street.
It will have the space to house 800 employees from CareSource, have a similar design to its headquarters and is intended create a walkable, campus like environment for its employees.
CareSource, which now has about 2,000 employees in downtown Dayton, has been rapidly growing in recent years into a nonprofit with more than $7 billion in revenue and members in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and now Georgia, which it just expanded into this year.
The insurer has become a major employer in Dayton, anchoring downtown with its employment base. It struck a deal with the Ohio Tax Credit Authority late last year to increase its job-creation commitment to 1,920 jobs by 2019 — including current positions being filled and the new jobs promised — raising the company’s annual payroll in Dayton to more than $129 million.
Along with its 230 N. Main St. headquarters, CareSource bought a building it had been leasing called Ballpark Village, across from Fifth Third Field.

According to Dayton fire officials, everyone has been able to get out of the building and the only people believed to have been inside at the time the fire started were construction workers.
“All of the occupants are out of the building,” said Bryan Adams, spokesman for the fire department. “There’s lots of material up there.”
