Sacramento Fire says their crews responded just after 4 a.m. Three-alarms were called as firefighters initially found it difficult to get to the flames due to a partition in the building.
Eventually, firefighters had to go in through the roof. The fire is now out.
There were initial reports of someone possibly being inside, firefighters say, but a search of the building came up empty.
