It will be business as usual come Monday at the Akron Community Foundation after a fire Friday morning has displaced the organization from its Akron headquarters.

The office will be closed while repairs are made, but Foundation President John T. Petures Jr. said the work of the charitable organization will continue as the staff works off site.

The fire, which remains under investigation, started in the West Cedar Street building’s lobby.

Petures said the foundation’s assets, which total nearly $180 million - including more than $4 million received in the last two weeks of December, are safe as they are held off site.

Petures said fire doors prevented damage to grant records, historical documents and other records.

“We were founded in 1955 to serve this community, especially during times of disaster, and the planning, foresight and preparedness of staff, board members and prior leadership has made that possible,” Petures said in a prepared statement.

The Foundation expect repairs to its office to be completed by Jan. 21.
