VALLEJO — A four-alarm fire ripped through a north Mare Island building on Azuar Drive Sunday evening, prompting the Fairfield Fire Department to send a truck, engine and battalion vehicle to help put it out.
The 7:20 p.m. fire broke out in an abandoned barracks building. The building was at least 50 percent involved before firefighters arrived and firefighters took a defensive strategy, according to Vallejo fire officials. Crews were still at the scene at 9:30 p.m.
A video and photos posted by firefighters show a large, rectangular, dilapidated wooden structure, about half of it engulfed in flames. Go to https://www.facebook.com/officialvallejofirefighters to see video of the fire.
