A four-alarm fire broke out at a roofing business in San Jose, Calif, the morning of Dec. 4, lasting until the afternoon.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the large fire originated at the back corners of the property near a storage area. The area housed a variety of roofing materials, including metal, cement, adhesives and other types of materials. A black plume of smoke could be seen by onlookers, many of whom recorded the fire and posted it on social media.
“That’s what created that big, black column of smoke,” Erica Ray, a San Jose Fire Department spokesperson, told the San Francisco Chronicle. “There was just a lot of material that was burning off once it caught fire.”
More than 90 firefighters responded to the fire, which was eventually controlled by 2:30 p.m. the same day. Fire officials did not report any injuries, and arson is not suspected. The name of the roofing business was not released.
