Several Spaces Damaged After Storage Unit Facility Fire in Fremont

All 40 units at a storage unit facility in Fremont suffered some degree of damage after a three-alarm blaze ripped through the complex Friday night, according to officials.

The fire, which ignited around 8:45 p.m. at Fremont Mini Storage located at 45252 Industrial Drive, injured one person and resulted in a cat's death, according to Deputy Fire Chief Amiel Thurston from the Fremont Fire Department.

A total of 18 units suffered heavy damage as a direct result of the fire, according to fire officials. The other units were also damaged because firefighters had to forcibly enter them in order to fight the flames.

The cause of the blaze is not clear at this time, according to Thurston. A fire investigator was summoned to the scene, which is close to the Tesla factory.

The person who was injured left the scene before being treated or talking extensively with fire crews, Thurston said.

Firefighters plan to stay at the scene into the overnight hours to keep an eye on any hot spots.

Further information was not available at the time.
