Fire crews battle fire at vacant building


FRESNO, Calif. (KGPE/KSEE) — Fresno fire crews battle a fire at a vacant building Tuesday evening.

The Fresno Fire Department received a call that came at around 3:30 p.m. about a fire at a burning office building on Millbrook and Shields avenues.

“There’s heavy homeless activity within the structure, they’ve been set up in there, there’s mattresses, beds all kinds of stuff that it’s clearly been lived in for some time,” said Fresno Fire Department PIO Shane Brown.

Officials say no one was found inside the building and firefighters were able to protect a neighboring office building from the flames.
