Fire destroys furniture store in Southwest Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Firefighters spent several hours at the scene on Church and East Avenue. They say the flames started in the basement of the La Baratita Bedding and Furniture store.
Crews were able to save most of the furniture before the situation became too dangerous and they had to back out. A battalion chief said the building is at least 50 years old, and its design also posed a risk. He said the building is a total loss.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
