Santa Rosa firefighters responded Friday morning to a commercial structure fire.

At 12:57 a.m. Friday, the Santa Rosa Fire Department received a report of a burning building at 2999 Dutton Ave.

Responding firefighters found an active fire in a single-story, mixed-use office and warehouse commercial building.

The fire was spreading through the windows on the south side of the building.

The building has been divided into three occupations housing three different businesses.

WheelCare Express, the southernmost company, experienced a major fire inside its warehouse and vehicle repair area. The fire had also spread to the company’s offices, the firefighter said.


Crews were able to extinguish the fire and no occupants were found inside the business.

The other two businesses suffered smoke and water damage.

Firefighters said it took around 45 minutes to bring the blaze under control and several hours to extinguish hot spots.

Estimated damage from the fire was around $500,000, with WheelCare Express suffering a total loss.

No injuries were reported in the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
