Mid Town Fire Threatens Apartment Buildings

A Mid Town structure fire destroyed a large garage and threatened two separate apartment buildings. A “dumpster” fire was reported at 5:20 A.M.

Sacramento Fire Department Engine 4 arrived at 5:25 A.M. and found a large garage heavily involved in fire. The fire was threatening two adjacent apartment buildings and some overhead electrical lines. A total of five Fire Engines and three Fire Trucks responded.

Firefighters did an outstanding job of keeping this fire contained to the garage. Both of the adjacent apartment buildings were very close to the involved garage.

A Sacramento Fire Department Haz Mat Team was called out to monitor the water run off. There have been no reported injuries and a Sacramento Fire Department Investigator is on scene trying to determine the cause of the fire.
