SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters have contained a massive early morning 5-alarm blaze at a vacant warehouse near Highway 101 in San Jose.
Dozens of firefighters were expected to remain on the scene for hours pouring water on the fire that was reported shortly after 5:30 a.m. Thursday at the warehouse that once occupied several businesses in a mostly industrial area.
No injuries have been reported.
Fire officials say fire is believed to have started at the north end as the roof partially collapsed while crews were preventing the blaze from spreading.
The California Highway Patrol has also reopened a stretch of Highway 101 near Julian Street as crews now have the fire under control.
But, two schools nearby have cancelled classes and will be closed for the day because of the fire.
