Amazon On Fire: Mega Corporation Warehouse Blazes in California
In the early morning, there was a strong fire in the Amazon warehouse in Redlands. At present, the causes of the fire are unknown.

During the localization of the fire, fire brigades blocked the motorway, while warehouse workers fled.
“I looked down the aisle, and I seen flames,” one employee recalled in an interview with CBSLA. “First thing I did was just yell out, ‘fire, fire.'” Another employee remembered the sudden pandemonium. “All I could hear was my supervisors yelling ‘fire’ and ‘get out of the building as fast as you can,’ and I just seen people scattering.”
According to available information, no casualties at the scene. According to employees, the fire started around 5:30 - 5: 50 in the morning.
