Elgin Fire Chief John Fahy said earlier this week the fire was set intentionally, causing damage to the lobby and both elevators.
Officials said it appeared miscellaneous items were on fire, including a trash can, officials said.
Elgin Fire Department Battalion Chief Terry Bruce said firefighters found the front lobby door's glass broken.
"Police got a hold of the witness. He said when he spotted the fire inside the building, the door was broken," he said.
The investigation into the fire could take up to a few weeks, Bruce said.
Elgin Police Cmdr. Dan O'Shea said police had no comment about the ongoing investigation.
