Fire crews will continue mopping up hot spots at least until this evening at a San Jose storage facility where a three-alarm fire damaged dozens of lockers Sunday night, a fire captain said.
The blaze was reported just before 7 p.m. at Bay Area Self Storage at 6020 Monterey Road, San Jose fire Capt. Charles Rangel said. It was controlled at 1:05 a.m. today.
Forty-eight storage lockers were damaged in the flames, and another 20 endured smoke and water damage, according to Rangel.
A police officer complained of a headache and sore throat likely due to smoke drift, but the officer did not need to be hospitalized, Rangel said. No other injuries were reported.
Authorities issued a shelter-in-place warning Sunday night due to heavy smoke from the fire, and lifted it at about 5:30 a.m. today, Rangel said.
The fire appears to have started in one of the storage lockers, but the cause has not yet been determined. Rangel said it does not appear suspicious.
