Chico firefighters and police investigators responded to the scene of a fire at a self-storage facility Tuesday evening. The fire broke out just after eight p.m. at Esplanade Mini Storage, between Lassen and Shasta avenues.
It's not known yet how the fire started, but police say the man who rents the unit was there when it broke out. He was arrested on an outstanding warrant and police say was not being cooperative. The fire appears to have spread to other storage units but it's not clear how many. There was a fear the materials burning may have been hazardous but firefighters determined they were safe.
