Shafter, Ca - At 12:16 p.m., fire crews faced a vacant, under construction, 1400 sq. ft. single storystructure with fire in the center of the building. Initial crews made an aggressive interior attack, while simultaneously searching for victims. Due to the size of the fire, and also providing for firefighter safety, a second alarm was requested. Efforts to extinguish the fire were hampered by downed power lines and difficulty accessing the involved building. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
