    COCOA, Fla. - A fire Monday caused between $50,000 and $100,00 in damage to a SpaceX facility in Cocoa, according to the Cocoa Police Department. 

    Police said the fire was reported just after noon at the Spacex facility on Cidco Road.

    Officers said the fire was extinguished within 10 minutes and may have been caused by an electrical issue.
