Fire hits Apple campus
Fire struck Apple's main campus in Cupertino, California late Tuesday night, writes The Mercury News. The blaze is said to have erupted at Valley Green Six, 20605 Valley Green Drive, and produced a heavy amount of smoke, earning a three-alarm rating and more than 60 firefighters. Emergency crews from as far away as San Jose, Santa Clara and Los Altos arrived at the scene, while Apple workers took photos with their iPhones.
The fire was first reported by Apple employees around 10PM Pacific time, who suspected that it started on the roof, due to the smoke in the vicinity. The deputy chief for Santa Clara County Fire, however, has suggested that it actually began in an air conditioner on the second floor. It was finally contained around 12:30AM, but while there are no reports of injuries, the amount of property damage inflicted is unknown.
