Shortly after 1:30 P.M. this afternoon, a two alarm fire in an auto salvage yard destroyed at least 15 cars and threatened at least one building this afternoon in North Sacramento.
Sacramento Firefighters responded for the reported car fire and found the large fire inside the salvage yard. Crews were able to protect the threatened building, but the damage was already done to the cars.
A private security guard detained two persons of interest for questioning. The two were released after further questioning by a Sacramento Fire Department Arson Investigator. Firefighters from Sacramento Metro Fire District also responded.
There were no reported injuries and the cause is still being investigated.
