Large flames shot out of the roof of a commercial building early Wednesday as firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire in Barrio Logan.
A total of 63 personnel was assigned to the structure fire shortly before 3 a.m. off Thor and Dalbergia Streets. Plumes of smoke could be seen from nearby Interstate 5 as crews battled the blaze.
The inferno was reported at an apparently abandoned building that has caught fire twice since December.
“The suspicious part about this is, you wouldn’t think there wouldn’t be that much fuel left...but it’s still burning," said Kelly Zombaro, Deputy Fire Chief San Diego Fire.
The owners have previously tried to get it demolished, but to no avail.
No one was in the building at the time of the blaze and no injuries were immediately reported.
Details on what caused the blaze were not immediately available.
