CONCORD, Calif. (AP) - Fire officials say a blaze at a warehouse facility in Concord that smoldered for hours and prompted a health advisory is now out.
Contra Costa Fire Capt. Robert Marshall told the Contra Costa Times the blaze was extinguished around 11 a.m. Wednesday, nearly 12 hours after it began.
The fire burned a building housing a telecommunications company, blanketing the surrounding area in smoke and the smell of burning plastic.
The Contra Costa Health Department advised residents within a half mile of the fire to stay indoors. The advisory was lifted around 11 a.m. after a little more than two hours.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was hurt.
