An early morning fire scorched a downtown Fresno warehouse filled with furniture and mattresses on Saturday, spurring a response from about three dozen firefighters.
Firefighters were called out just before 5 a.m. to 115 Van Ness Avenue, just south of Highway 41, according to Robert Castillo, the Fresno Fire Department public information officer.
No injuries were reported but the building showed a significant amount of flames as crews arrived, Castillo said. “This facility was used to store furniture and mattresses so you can imagine the fuel load the firefighters faced,” he said.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation and firefighters were expected to remain at the scene for several hours.
