Sacramento Warehouse Fire Causes Two Million in Damage

Sacramento fire officials said that damage from a fire that destroyed a downtown warehouse and a classic car collection is estimated at $2 million dollars, reports KCRA 3.

Fire investigators worked throughout the day at the building near 14th and E streets.

One investigator climbed to the top of a fire engine ladder to take take pictures from above because of concern the building’s brick walls might collapse.

“Especially the eastern portion of the building is extremely unsound,” Deputy Fire Chief Lloyd Ogan said.

Ogan said it looks as if the fire started inside the building near a rear alley.

He said investigators had not yet determined how the fire started but said an accident was looking more and more likely.

“At this point we don’t have anything that tells us that it’s suspicious, so we’re not leaning that direction right now,” he told reporters.
