Santa Ana: Massive Fire Engulfs Commercial Warehouse

06.23.2022 | 6:28 PM | SANTA ANA – A massive fire engulfed a commercial warehouse near a lumber yard, Thursday evening.

The fire was reported in a single-story commercial warehouse just north of a lumber yard located in the 2700 block of South Main Street, near Dyer Road, around 6:28 PM.

When crews arrived on scene they located heavy smoke and fire showing from the building and initiated an aggressive interior fire attack.

Due to worsening fire conditions crews pulled out of the building and used deck guns along with aerial master streams on ladder trucks to extinguish the blaze.

No injuries were reported and the firefight lasted over an hour prompting the closure of South Main Street between Dyer Road and Goetz Avenue for several hours.

Fire investigators are on scene working to determine the cause of the fire.

Anyone who witnesses suspicious activity before the fire broke out or who has other information regarding the incident is urged to contact investigators at (714) 573-6040.

Anonymous tips can be submitted through the Orange County Crime Stoppers by calling (855) TIP-OCCS or by visiting their website at
