(KRON) — Firefighters are on the scene of a two-alarm fire at a 7-Eleven store in San Leandro, according to the Alameda County Fire Department. The building is located at East 14th Street and 136th Avenue.
Two people were inside the store at the time but were able to get out safely, officials said. There are no reports of any injuries. Alameda County FD says it will provide more information soon. As of 2 p.m., the fire was largely under control, but a large firefighter presence remained at the scene.
The fire started outside in bushes on the side of the store but spread to the building and “ripped through the entire store,” Alameda Couty FD spokesperson Cheryl Hurd said.
Video from the scene indicated the 7-Eleven suffered heavy damage as a result of the blaze. Hurd said the roof of the structure collapsed as a result of the fire.
Northbound traffic on East 14th Street was closed, according to San Leandro police, while 136th Avenue was closed in both directions between East 14th Street and Bancroft Avenue.
