The city is now urging residents to take precautions to prevent their commercial buildings from being destroyed in a wildfire.
The city’s Fire Safety and Emergency Management Department has posted a public information alert that provides a list of some fire-related precautions to take to minimize damage to buildings and people.
The fire code is complex, so it’s important to keep these things in mind as you move through the city, according to the alert.
It also advises residents to check for and notify their city and state officials if they see anyone in distress.
“If a building is in a high fire risk area, you should contact your local fire department, which is an emergency response service that will help the city in determining the extent of damage and the extent to which the building is structurally damaged,” said Lt.
Brian S. Johnson of the city’s Department of Public Safety.
“If there are any suspicious activity, such as the possibility of a missing person or other suspicious activity that could indicate a building has been damaged, contact the fire department immediately.”
The Fire Safety Department also posted a photo of the fire hazard signs on its Twitter account showing the red, white and blue “Fire Hazard” signs.
The city has not identified the building in question, but it is being evacuated to a safe location.
It is unclear if the fire has damaged the building or whether it will be safe to reopen.
