Suspicious 2-Alarm Fire At Vallejo Mayor’s Office
VALLEJO (CBS SF / AP) — Mayor Osby Davis watched as firefighters battled a two-alarm fire at his downtown law office early Saturday morning in Vallejo, according to a Vallejo police lieutenant.
Vallejo fire Battalion Chief Paige Meyer said the fire started at about 1:30 a.m. at the law office located at 410 Tuolumne St., just across the street from the Solano County Superior Court, and that fire officials were investigating it as arson.
The fire was 50 percent involved when firefighters arrived at the scene. The fire damaged a waiting room and an office area before it was fully extinguished at about 1:45 a.m., Meyer said.
Fire inspectors were on scene Saturday morning and a full investigation was underway, Meyer said.
This is the second incident in recent months in which Davis has been the victim of a possible crime. On May 18 his motorcycle was stolen from the City Hall parking lot.
