Vivint Building Burned, 450 Employees Impacted

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Mar 31, 2014

Vivint is making national headlines again, but this time it's not for trying to stick it to tornado victims.

There were a number of news reports recently of a fire at Vivint. Some reports said it was a warehouse, others said it was a call center. The event was notable enough for the Department of Homeland Security to include it in its daily report as a top story:

The news reports were scarce on information so I wanted to know what impact it might have on the business. I spoke with Vivint to find the details of what happened.
