The fire that broke out last Thursday at Security Self-Storage in Chico, Calif., was caused by a motorcycle, according to the most recent reports. The fire began at approximately 6:30 p.m. and heavily damaged at least four units.
Firefighting crews from Butte County, Chico and two volunteer companies battled the blaze until late evening, cutting holes in the doors of at least two units to get at the heart of the fire.
Cal Fire-Butte County investigators said a motorcycle that had been ridden earlier in the day and backed into a unit started the fire, though they could not say if the source was hot exhaust pipes or an electrical problem.
No damage estimate has yet been released.
