Vallejo, CA – No injuries in middle-of-night apartment fire contained by sprinkler system

More than 40 people were displaced after a major fire broke out early Saturday at a four-story apartment building in downtown Vallejo, officials said.  The blaze struck about 12:30 a.m. at a building on the 500 block of Georgia Street called Kimberly Apartments, according to the Vallejo Fire Department. There were no injuries.

The fire was quickly contained to one of the units in the building, officials said.  The building’s sprinkler system activated in the fire, the Fire Department said.  Crews remained on scene throughout the morning to douse any hot spots.

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. shut down the gas and electrical power to the building. The structure is red-tagged — meaning tenants may not return to their units — until repairs are completed, the Fire Department said.  The Red Cross provided temporary housing vouchers to the displaced residents, officials said.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
