Oakland Fire Extinguishes Blaze at Auto Repair Shop

OAKLAND — Oakland firefighters have extinguished a structure fire in an auto repair shop.

Firefighters were called at 2:14 a.m. to a report of a fire at 10453 San Leandro Street where smoke was rising from the vents of a building.

Battalion Chief Emon Usher said crews had to force their way into the building and found the fire contained mostly in the first and second
floor office areas. Usher said no part of the outer structure of the building was damaged because the outer walls are concrete block.

Firefighters arrived at 2:17 a.m. and had the fire under control at 2:44 a.m.

A total of 26 firefighters responded and the department dispatched four engines and two trucks.

Usher said neither civilians nor firefighters were injured in the blaze and surrounding buildings were not damaged.
