Left over pedicure rubber slippers and pallets appear to be at the center of a three-alarm warehouse fire Wednesday night, the Sacramento City Fire Department reported.
Firefighters responded to an alarm at 8420 Elder Creek Road and found heavy smoke from a large warehouse, Capt. Jim Doucette said.
After firefighters entered the building, they encountered poor visibility and had difficulty finding the center of the fire. In total three alarms were called as firefighters searched for the seat of the fire, Doucette said. The building’s sprinkler system kept the fire from spreading.
Firefighters eventually found numerous pallets and boxes of rubber slippers used after pedicures. The 6:41 p.m. fire was contained in short order.
The building had a large amount of water and smoke damage and some minor fire damage. A hole was cut into the roof for ventilation.
There were no reports of injury at the business that was closed at the time of the fire. The cause of blaze is under investigation.
