Fire at 897 Independence Ave.
Contact : Laura Gentry
Fire Department PIO

On Saturday, November 4th at 1:36 PM Mountain View Communications received a 911 call reporting smoke inside a one story commercial building located at 897 Independence Ave. in Mountain View.

Units arrived on scene to find that a small localized fire contained to one of the offices had been mostly extinguished by the building’s fire sprinkler system. The sprinkler system is believed to have activated in response to the heat/fire and successfully kept the fire to a minimum.

Mountain View Fire shut down the building's sprinkler system and checked to ensure that the fire had not spread to other parts of the building. There were two occupants in the business at the time of the fire, both self-evacuated without injury. 

The exact cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
