Orange: Two-Alarm Blaze Rips Through Commercial Building

05.31.2024 | 2:18 AM | ORANGE – A two-alarm fire broke out in a two-story building but was quickly extinguished by firefighters before it could spread, early Friday morning.

The fire was reported at a building in the 2400 block of West Chapman Avenue near the SR-57 Freeway around 2:18 AM.

When firefighters arrived they located a well-established fire in the first floor of a two-story building and began efforts to extinguish the blaze.

It took about 25 minutes to douse the blaze and prevent flames from extending into adjacent office spaces.

Preliminary reports suggest the space destroyed by the fire was vacant.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the blaze.
