Grease fire in deli caused blaze at Haggen Foods in Auburn, investigators say
AUBURN – A grease fire in one of the delis caused a fire at Haggen Foods in Auburn on Thursday night, investigators with the Valley Regional Fire Authority said Friday.
The blaze started in the Oriental Express Deli, moving quickly past the hood and duct system and spreading to the ceiling, where it pushed smoke out through a vent.
The buidling’s sprinkler system went off, helping to suppress the fire until firefighters arrived.
The store is open again, but the deli is still closed.
Investigators said no damage estimate is available yet.
