The fire was reported about 3:58 a.m. at a pallet yard in the 1900 block of East Riverview Drive, according to a spokesperson for the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

A tweet by the Fire Department identified the business as Inland Pallets and stated that a nearby strip mall was also impacted by the blaze.

At one point during the firefight, ammunition from a nearby building got so hot it began to go off, Fire Department Capt. Marc Peebles said.

"It essentially implodes and blows out through the casings," said Peebles.

The Fire Department responded to the blaze with 20 engines, five ladder trucks, two dozers and two hand crews, Peebles said.
