Three-alarm fire at AppleMore than 60 firefighters swarm Apple's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters in the early hours Wednesday to extinguish a three-alarm fire that appeared to have started under a ventilation and air-conditioning unit on the roof.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> When the first crews got here, they saw smoke in the area. Our report was that there was potential fire on the roof. This was reported by workers who were onsite at the time. We advanced up, and we found fire underneath one of the air conditioning units - HVAC units on the roof. And so crews advanced up to the second floor to get to the scene of the fire. And our biggest issue right now is just evacuating smoke out of it. We pretty much have a knockdown on it at this time. And so we're just trying to get the smoke out of building, as well as salvage and overhaul operations of the bottom floor. It might have been an electrical issue. It might have been a gas issue because they were working on those units, we believe. I haven't been able to confirm that, but it was recorded by workers at the scene. Anytime you have a building that's occupied with a lot office spaces and things like that, drop ceiling, you have to breach that area to get your hose lines to the scene of the fire. The biggest concern is with us flowing water on the second floor, we have, obviously, no water on the first floor, so we're trying to salvage and protect all the property inside. ^M00:00:56 [ Music ]
