When firefighters arrived, they found a single-story strip mall with flames and black smoke rolling out of a store. Crews worked to extinguish flames that were burning through firewall.
The fire destroyed three units, but the total number of businesses is still being determined. Google Maps shows the stores near fire were a sporting goods store, a taqueria and an Asian grocery store.
Structural integrity was severely compromised which limited firefighters’ ability to gain complete access to put out hotspots. This compromise also hindered the Fire Investigators ability to being determining cause and point of origin.
No one was found in any of the adjacent businesses and no injuries were reported.
