Six-Alarm Machine Shop Fire in Redwood City (CA)

Firefighters battled a raging fire at a commercial machine shop early Friday morning, in a fire that quickly escalated to six alarms and displaced more than a dozen residents living in a nearby apartment, reports NBC Bay Area.

But despite the intensity of the fire, firefighters had the fire under control less than five hours and no one was injured, other than a firefighter who hurt his hand. The 15 or so people living in a nearby apartment building all were being helped by the American Red Cross and a nearby charter school was closed for the day.

How the fire started is still under investigation.
