Fire-ravaged Los Altos commercial building headed for demolition | News
Investigators are still at work in the aftermath of the Christmas day fire that decimated a large commercial building in Los Altos, with demolition set to begin Wednesday, Jan. 10.
“Fire investigators continue to work in collaboration with the city of Los Altos building division and several private insurance agencies to complete a thorough fire investigation that meets the needs of all parties,” according to a Tuesday (Jan. 9) statement from the Santa Clara County Fire Department. “Due to fire damage, the building has been declared unsafe and at risk of collapse. As a result, eastbound El Camino Real between San Antonio Road and Sherwood Avenue has remained closed and fire investigators have not been able to access the interior of the building to safely complete the investigative process.”
