2 Alarm Fire At Best Buy

A two alarm fire caused minimal damage to a Best Buy electronics store. Fire Sprinklers activated and kept the fire contained to a very small area in the storeroom until Firefighters arrived.

Firefighters encountered heavy smoke conditions inside the store and called for a second alarm. The Best Buy showroom was not damaged.

If not for the installation of Fire Sprinklers and a Fire Alarm, this building could have been a total loss. The Best Buy store manager said that the store would open for business today.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it appears to be mechanical in nature, possibly a heater. Sacramento Metro Firefighters also responded.
