Another vacant bldg. blaze

FIREFIGHTERS battle a fire in a vacant building Monday afternoon in Garden Grove (OCFA photo).

Vacant buildings in Garden Grove continue to present a fire hazard.

On Monday at 2:36 p.m. the Orange County Fire Authority received a call about a blaze in the 8700 block of Garden Grove Boulevard (between Beach Boulevard and Magnolia Street).

It took firefighters 23 minutes to get the fully-involved fire under control and to prevent extension into an adjacent structure.

There were no injuries and the cause is under investigation. Garden Grove police assisted in the operation.

So far this year there have been three other fires in vacant buildings in the Harbor Boulevard/Trask Avenue area. Transients living in such buildings may be connected to the blazes.
