Fire destroys building, burns vegetation in Suisun City

By From page A3 | May 30, 2014

SUISUN CITY — One vacant structure and some vegetation burned Thursday morning, sending brown smoke into the sky.

Suisun City firefighters responded with three apparatus and a command unit. The fire was called in at about 7 a.m. and was near the railroad tracks off Cordelia Road, between Pennsylvania Avenue and West Street.

There are homeless encampments in the area, but it was determined no one was in the building at the time of the fire, said Suisun City fire Capt. Carmen Maio.

The smoke could be seen from Travis Boulevard in Fairfield as well as the Suisun City fire station on Pintail Drive.

Firefighters had the fire under control in about 45 minutes. The cause of the fire was under investigation, Maio said.

    Well, that's too bad. I enjoyed riding my bike out that way, and those old buildings looked like something that was used for farms. We can't have anything nice, can we?
