The fire, first reported at 8:49 p.m. Saturday and contained at 11:35 p.m., destroyed a towing warehouse, the adjoining Bonanza restaurant and an upstairs residential unit.
The owner of the restaurant was able to escape the blaze but it wasn’t clear if he was one of the residents of the upstairs unit.
The blaze downed multiple power lines, causing outages for about 5,600 households in the area.
Nobody was injured but two people in the residential unit were displaced.
