Two-Alarm Fire Rips Through Mountain View Businesses

Police and firefighters raced to a two-alarm commercial structure fire in Mountain View that damaged buildings at a business park.

The blaze was reported in the first block of East Evelyn Avenue at 8:18 p.m. on Monday, according to Mountain View Fire spokesman Lynn Brown.

Crews found heavy smoke coming from a single-story structure containing multiple businesses, such as 219 Design, SmugMug, Eve Biomedical and Los Gatos Research. They upgraded the incident to a second alarm, and Palo Alto firefighters sent a truck to assist, Brown said.

Around 9:45 p.m., Brown said that most of the blaze had been brought under control, but firefighters were going business to business putting out remaining hotspots.

No injuries have been reported.
