Fire at Historic Rosenberg Building in Santa Rosa
According to Santa Rosa Fire officials, a two-alarm fire at a near-century-old, six-story apartment building in downtown Santa Rosa was reported early Wednesday morning. A woman was transported to a hospital and five others were displaced by the fire that started in a single unit on the sixth floor of the Rosenberg Building at 306 Mendocino Avenue.
An update reported by the Santa Rosa Press Democrat indicates that the fire’s origin was traced to an electrical issue from a power strip extension cord — including one plug used for a pet lizard’s heat lamp, according to Battalion Chief Matt Dahl.
