UPDATED: Firefighters Responded to Two-Alarm Fire on McGlincy

The fire was reported to Santa Clara County Fire Department around 5:00 a.m. June 19.

UPDATED June 19, 6:00 p.m. 

A two-alarm blaze in an industrial complex early this morning caused more than $200,000 in damage, fire officials said.

The Santa Clara County Fire Department learned of the fire at 529 E. McGlincy Lane at 5:00 a.m., when a tenant of one of the building's other units reported it, according to fire Capt. Ryan Cronin.

The fire was in the building's F unit, which is located farthest from the street and is about 1,500 to 2,000 square feet in size. The unit's tenant is Cayton Construction, according to Cronin.

Additional firefighting units from Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, and Los Altos Hills responded at around 5:15 a.m. and the fire was under control by 5:41 a.m., Cronin said.

Most of the equipment in the unit's loft area, where detectives believe the fire originated, was destroyed, Cronin said. Construction equipment on the ground floor fared better, he said.

In order to extinguish the blaze, firefighters had to create a trench cut, a 3- to 4-foot-wide cut along the length of the building's ceiling, to help them control the fire, Cronin said.

According to Cronin, the cause of the fire was not suspicious and most likely electrical.

There were no injuries reported and the unit was unoccupied at the time of the fire, Cronin said.
