Firefighters extinguished a three-alarm fire Thursday morning at a commercial structure in San Bernardino, officials said.
No injuries were reported, and the fire was knocked down by 5:45 a.m.
The roof had collapsed before firefighters arrived and spread from one business into another, according to fire Engineer Mike Arvizo.
The business was identified as Omar’s Wireless, a cellphone company. The neighboring business, which was partially damaged, was a Metro PCS store, Arvizo said.
The scene was across the street from the iconic Wigwam Hotel, a Route 66 landmark whose rooms are shaped like teepees.
The fire was being investigated as a possible arson, the Fire Department said.
