Next day, CIty went to the location and met with Chief Building Engineer and reported the complaint to him and his assistant. He showed to the location where the contractor was working on the boiler system. Something happened that caused the smoke. He said that there is a piece that is not working right and needs to be changed. He already placed the order and will install it as soon as it arrives. Also reported  that the Fire Department came in when it happened as well because someone has placed a call to them. He will update us once the piece is replaced.)
