Fire burns Anchorage warehouse, household goods

Posted: Thursday, May 30, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage warehouse burned Thursday morning in what firefighters described as a two-alarm fire.

Firefighters were called to the building at about 5 a.m. The fire was in a warehouse shared by Alison's Relocations, Dan Bull Trucking and Eyak Trucking.

The first fire crews on the scene found the building fully engulfed and were unable to fight the fire from inside.

Firefighters were able to open the office area. After obtaining keys, they moved several tractor-trailers away from the building.

Kempton said the building mostly was full of household goods awaiting transport.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
