Lease Breaker: Massive Mare Island warehouse fire at former Navy

The Vallejo Fire Department confirmed a "massive" three-alarm warehouse fire on Mare Island shortly before midnight Thursday.

According to the department, the fire on the former Navy shipyard was a "commercial structure fire" at Alco Metal & Iron Company, a recycler at 629 Azuar Drive.

As late as 3 a.m. Friday, the department was asking residents to avoid the area.

The fire department responded almost exactly a year ago to a three-alarm fire in Alco's recycling yard on August 22, 2014, according to published reports at that time.

Mare Island was also the site of a large four-alarm fire in an abandoned barracks last August and a fire in 2005 that destroyed $200 million worth of wine and resulted in the conviction of an arsonist.
