Fire crews battle blaze in downtown Atascadero
March 7, 2009
Fire crews continue to monitor the smoldering remains of an older commercial building on El Camino Real in Atascadero near the Carlton Hotel.
Witnesses reported the fire at around 10 p.m. Saturday. When firefighters arrived at the North County Christian School thrift store the building was engulfed in flames. The roof had collapsed into the building hampering firefighters’ efforts to fully extinguish the smoldering rubble, according to an Atascadero Firefighter.
The cause of the blaze is unknown at this time.
