News: 2-alarm commercial building - Union city

Fire in Union City under investigation

UNION CITY — The source of a two-alarm commercial building fire that caused an unestimated amount of damage Wednesday night still was being investigated Thursday evening.

Two firefighters suffered minor injuries after responding to the blaze, which was reported by an alarm company as well as the police department at 9:21 p.m., and was under control about 10 p.m. No one else was injured.

When firefighters arrived, smoke already was pouring from the building at 30065 Eigenbrodt Way.

Units from the Fremont and Newark fire departments were called in to assist, and, using their aerial ladders, ventilated the building from the roof.
