A report that a woman might be inside a vacant commercial building that burned Monday morning turned out to be unfounded.
Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District crews responded at about 1:30 a.m. Monday to 8372 Wilbur Way where fire was burning inside a concrete-walled structure that formerly housed a medical gas supplier.
The fire near Power Inn and Gerber roads grew to three alarms as firefighters successfully worked to contain the blaze to the building where the fire originated.
A man on scene reported that his girlfriend was inside. However, no victims have been found, according to Walt White, assistant chief at Sac Metro.
