Authorities say outside the warehouse a mattress was on fire and the flames were threatening the building. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the blaze. The warehouse sustained only minor damage, according to firefighters. The cause of the fire isn't known, but firefighters say it may have been started by a homeless person.
