He tells us all of the construction crews that were at the site, as well as contractors are unharmed.
The cause of the fire is underinvestigation.

UPDATE -  Mark Mosley, on behalf of the Williams Group released a statement moments ago.
        He said in part that the Williams Group is thankful for the Amarillo Fire Department and Amarillo Police for their response this afternoon.
